Hearing loss group call for new members – Northern Ireland

A long-standing community group for people affected by hearing loss is calling for new members of all ages.

The Lisburn Hard of Hearing Group was first established over 13 years ago and members meet on the first Wednesday of each month covering a great programme of interesting activities lined up. They have recently moved premises and now meet at The Bridge Community Centre in Lisburn and are using the opportunity to encourage new people to join.

Betty Conor, group member, said: ‘I have been attending the group for over 10 years, I really enjoy it and look forward to it every month. Some months we have guest speakers, others we do activities like keep fit and there are other times when we go out for a meal. I have honestly met some life-long friends through the group.”

Nuala Muldoon, Northern Ireland Manager for Hearing Link, said: “This is such a lovely, friendly and fun group. Anyone living with hearing loss should come along to have a cup of tea and a chat, learn new things, and meet new people.”
