CI Five Counties (UK):
The socials are informal and friendly with people that understand about hearing loss and the challenges it presents in everyday life.
Venues will have minimal background noise to aid better hearing and also close to transport links e.g. train and bus stations plus car parking.
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.

CI Southern Counties
It’s a grade II listed pub, so the toilets are down 10 steps to lower floor. Otherwise, the location is all on street level.
Well lit for lipreading. Town centre parking nearby.
All park and rides will stop at Westgate, however Pitt and South Winchester car park points are the closest park and rides.
2 minutes walk from the end of the High Street.
5/10 minutes walk from the Winchester mainline Station.
For our new members – a huge welcome. You will find all our members are most happy to chat about their experiences.
Many members may even tell you that they were nervous coming to their first Social…. but they soon float away (the nerves, not the people!) once we find like minded people who share communication struggles and giggles. Some of us sign. Some of us don’t. Some of us lipread well. Some of us don’t. Some of us are local, some are not. Some are over 50 years older, and some are not! 😎 We are a mixed bunch!
We welcome all Cochlear Implant users, their families and friends, children, Hearing Dogs, Guide Dogs, and anyone considering an Implant.
Sandra and Caroline. 😍😍
