Partners, parents of CI children and friends of CI users or candidates are very welcome as well as people with a wide variety of backgrounds – whether you are born deaf, late deafened, sign, don’t sign or a bit of both.

The closest car park is The Crescent, and Taunton train station is 15 minutes walk. More advice on parking, as the Crescent may be busy:
“The best place would be the muti story car park in Paul street. Once in there you can get the lift down to the orchard shopping centre and it’s about a ten minute walk to Bath place not far from Boots.”

TINNITUS SUPPORT GROUP

The group runs on the first Tuesday of every other month from 1.15-3.15pm and operates on a drop in basis so although it is useful for Sarah to know if you plan to come along it is not necessary.
There is no set charge to attend the group but any donations will be gladly received to help us cover our costs- a donation tin will be put out at each meeting.
Our next meeting; Tuesday 5th June. We will welcome Julie Brady who works within the Tinnitus Team at Nottingham Audiology.
June is also Tea for Tinnitus month so we will be celebrating this by sharing some cakes and treats. If anyone is a budding Mary Berry and would like to bake anything for the day please let Sarah Hoyle know: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (0115) 9427 804.
