NB The monthly visit of the deafPLUS van with advice and support for the hard of hearing is on Tuesday 24th November. The unit will be parked in the High street, outside Marks & Spencer's. Why not drop in, especially if you are finding your hearing aid (NHS) a little troublesome. Graham will have time to talk you through any problems.
