Cornwall CI Social - Pentewan

Cornwall CI Social - Pentewan - all deaf welcome

Sunday 23rd September11:30am - 2:30pm 

Posted on behalf of Joanne Tracey Batchelor who is the main organiser of this event:

Just a friendly get together for those of us who are deaf. Some have cochlear implants, some have hearing aids and some don't. Some lipread, some use sign language but everyone is welcome. There is a soft play area for the children to play. If anyone wants a roast let me know and we can book a table, if not you can just have a drink. You do have to pay for the car park, limited to 3 hours. You can get this money back if you buy food or drink. See you there :D

CISW Social - Saturday 26 May

Has spring finally sprung? We have now rescheduled our CI social in Taunton (which was cancelled due to heavy snowfall in March) ... hopefully this time it will be a sunny day! 

Hope you can join us. All CI users, candidates, friends, and family are welcome to come along. 

CI South West Spring Social - TAUNTON
(rescheduled due to snow in March)

Saturday 26 May 
1:30pm - 4:30pm

Pitcher & Piano 
Corporation Street, Taunton, TA1 4AJ

Join us for a drink and a friendly chat! A space has been reserved for us at the Pitcher & Piano, which is located in the centre of Taunton, almost opposite the bus station. The closest car park is The Crescent, and Taunton train station is 15 minutes walk.

More advice on parking, as the Crescent may be busy:
"The best place would be the muti story car park in Paul street. Once in there you can get the lift down to the orchard shopping centre and it’s about a ten minute walk to Bath place not far from Boots."
Please note that Taunton Park & Ride no longer operates on Saturdays (some people used this service last year).

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have questions about this event - email us at

Tomorrow's CI South West social in Taunton has unfortunately been cancelled due to weather and transport issues. So much for the first social of "Spring"! We will attempt a return to Taunton later this year.

If you know anyone else who was thinking of going tomorrow, please do let them know ASAP. Many apologies for the inconvenience.
