Here’s the pick of the pictures from our AGM on Saturday when Charlie Swinbourne came to talk about his career in making films.
Apart from the normal AGM business, we also elected a new trustee in Steve Curry and held a workshop looking at the future of CDA and what we should be doing until the year 2020.
There was a super attendance and plenty of fun to be had at Peterborough Deaf Drop-in Christmas meal at Cooper’s in Bretton Peterborough last night.
Ky Dai, coordinator of Drop-in for CDA said: “Today we all celebrated with a Christmas party at Cooper’s Pub. Every one enjoyed the three-course Christmas dinner. Some of us played games, some of us met up with old friends and caught up. At the end, Zara, Millie and Ella signed Silent Night for us.”
Take a look at some of the pictures from the night!
Big thank you to Ky for organising the event. Ky also went to the restaurant before the event to give the staff some deaf awareness training! Thank you also to Cooper’s for a good evening! Merry Christmas.

Here are some pictures from the signed Christmas carol service at Hope Hall earlier this month.
Jan Smith, Deaf Church Coordinator organised the event which was the first service at Hope Hall since its refurbishment. She said:
“It was lovely to see lots of people at the BSL Carol Service.
“In all our busy Christmas preparations, shopping, present wrapping, visiting it was good to stop and think why we are doing it, what is Christmas all about?
“The Christmas Story was signed by Fiona Tran, Joan Hartley, Jane Marsh, Ann Wells. Carols were signed by Janie, Julie, Ann and me but BEST of all were the children, Zara, Millie, Amber and Ali who signed Away in a Manger and Silent Night, beautifully.
“Rev. Peter Wood from Ely Diocese spoke a blessing on us all. Maybe this Christmas, you too can stop and think about the Baby in a manger?
“God with us, who came to bring hope, peace and light to the World.”
