Update on Standish Lipreading Society and the Coronavirus
Please note that all group activities are suspended until further notice.We would like to reassure everyone that, as soon as we are able, Standish Lipreading Society classes will run as usual.
In the meantime, KEEP SAFE!
What are we up to in lockdown?
Other members have formed a Whatsapp group enabling members to keep in touch and to get to know each other better as well as share ideas of what they are doing to occupy time whilst being isolated.
Both our tutors, who happen to work in care homes, have reported that so far, homes are virus free. Well done to everyone!
Thank you Slimming World

Standish Library Garden Dig
Christine Scholes, Chair and Joyce Dalgliesh, Vice Chair of Standish Lipreading Society planting a perennial in The Mayflower border at Standish Library Garden Dig held on Saturday 5 October.
Standish Lipreading Society qualified for the finals of the Rotary grant award. In a Dragon’s Den style presentation, Dave Johnson, with the support of Alison Wareing (our Tuesday class Tutor), did an excellent job and at the end of the evening the Society was awarded a cheque for £944. Thank you so much to Wigan Rotary Club for their their support.

Sensory Team Visit
Members of Standish Lipreading Society enjoyed a visit from Sue Porter and Ruth Bimson from Wigan Social Services, Sensory Team who give a talk and demonstration of equipment to assist people with hearing loss. It was a really worthwhile and enjoyable session and both Sue and Ruth patiently answered all our questions. A very big thank you to both of you …
Did you win one or even more of these fantastic raffle prizes? If not we are terribly sorry, but you may be comforted by the fact that tickets bought from us raised a mammoth £214! This money will help pay towards our lip-reading sessions at the Standish Community Centre and Standish Library. Thank you to all who kindly donated the prizes, those who purchased tickets and most important of all our Anne, the fundraising officer (pictured), who organised and managed the event. celebrating their success
