News in the county of Surrey



Wednesday 13 January – Wednesday 23 November 2016

Starts: 10:00am, 11:30am

Seasoned storytellers Paul Rubinstein, Olivia Armstrong and Becky Dixon deliver a series of sessions for babies and toddlers, aiming to engage and encourage interaction between parents/carers and their little ones using musical instruments, singing, movement and stories.


Developing coordination, self-confidence and awareness using songs, sounds, rhythms and rhymes, we explore the Hall’s story of diverse musical history.


Every child requires a ticket and must be accompanied by a participating adult (accompanying adults do not require a ticket).


A limited number of £1 subsidised tickets are available, please call the Box Office on 020 7589 8212 for more information and to book these.


We will be running a BSL signed session for deaf and hearing-impaired children on 10 May at 11.30am



Surrey's Physical and Sensory Support team are looking to review their services and want to hear your views.
They are holding a meeting with an  interpreter present on Tuesday 22 March at Fairmount House in Leatherhead.

The meeting is from 5.30pm until 7.00pm and will cover Surrey's travel assistance policy and the support provided by the sensory service.

If you would like more information about the event please contact Pamela Todd. Sorry for the short notice!

If any SDCS members have any matters that they would like to raise but are unable to attend the meeting please e-mail them over to SDCS committee member Xenia James (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Mary Hare in collaboration with CICs, Elizabeth Foundation and Mary Hare Primary School would like to invite all SDCS members to their 'Fun Day' on the 11th June.

The main aim of the day is to get local deaf children and their siblings together for a Fun Day. They will be organising fun activities (plus a bouncy castle) and some workshops for families to get involved in (focused on building understanding and cementing relationships between siblings both hearing and deaf). 

You are invited to bring along a picnic or purchase BBQ refreshments from the Mary Hare Primary School PTA. The event will take place in the grounds of Mary Hare Primary School. Mary Hare Primary School, Mill Hall, Pigeons Farm Road, Newbury, Berkshire, RG19 8XA.

If you are interested in attending you will need to contact Natalie Ross directly (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. / 01635 244 215) to complete a booking form.
