Join us for a ‘Sign-a-Long’ in Boscombe Chine Gardens!

The Alternate Routes – ‘Nothing More’ signed by George Raggett

Fancy joining our award winning Signing Choir ‘Significance’ for a ‘Sign-a-Long’ on Sunday 22 July?

We’re aiming to bring the community together to help breakdown some of the barriers to communication and what better way to introduce families to BSL than to learn a song and simple signs, and perform along with the song TOGETHER!  You’ll have lots of fun while helping Wiltshire and Dorset Deaf Association to raise money to support our work teaching Deaf parents of young pupils to deliver Deaf Awareness & Communication training to local Nursery and Primary Schools in Dorset.

The song we have chosen is ‘Nothing More’ by The Alternate Routes.  To give you a taster, and a chance to have a go at learning to ‘Sign-a-Long’, our very talented Tutor and Trustee George has kindly filmed this video for you.  Let us know how you get on, even better – why not post a video clip of you signing to music on our Facebook event page and help encourage others to join us for the big ‘Sign-a-Long’ in Boscombe Chine Gardens on Sunday 22 July! https://www.facebook.com/events/431754227270904/

“we are how we treat each other, and nothing more.”

Sign for Change – Sunday 22 July 2018

Wiltshire and Dorset Deaf Association is holding a family friendly fundraising and deaf awareness event ‘Sign for Change’ in Boscombe Chine Gardens (Christchurch Road end) on Sunday 22 July 2018 11am-4pm.  We will be hosting a screening of the Oscar winning film ‘The Silent Child’ and introduction to BSL sessions inside the FOBGC Education Centre (next to the basketball court) alongside a vintage style tea party and refreshments throughout the day, a performance from our Signing Choir ‘Significance’ outside and a range of children’s activities.

The aim of the event is to help bring hearing and Deaf children and families together and to help breakdown some of the barriers to communication by introducing families to BSL.  We are fundraising to support our work teaching Deaf parents of young pupils to deliver to Deaf Awareness & Communication training to local Nursery and Primary Schools in Dorset.
