About the group

The Banbridge Lipreading group is the initiative of Leslie and Ramona Williams.

Leslie read a leaflet at his Audiology Department suggesting that everyone with hearing loss should have access to Lipreading Classes. He was then disappointed to learn that there are currently no classes available in his local area and felt that it was important to get something started.

Group members have been very enthusiastic about the benefits of attending the group and sessions continue to run for people of all ages in the area, younger and older.

Autumn/winter 2017 classes

Lipreading classes will be taking place on Thursday afternoons from 2pm – 4pm in the community room of Tesco at Bridgewater retail park in Banbridge (map). The classes will begin on 21st September and run weekly through to 30th November. There will be a break for the Halloween holiday on 2nd November. The class is free to attend.

Monthly night classes

The group will also be offering a monthly evening class on a trial basis to gauge interest, taking place at 6:30pm – 8:30pm also in the community room of Tesco Banbridge Bridgewater. The dates for the night class are: 12th September, 10th October, 14th November, 12th December.

A nominal fee of £5 per person per night class is payable, which includes tea and coffee. The fee is to contribute to tutor costs.
