Cirencester Deaf Children's Club (CDCC) celebrated turning six at the weekend...
On Saturday, 22 young people and their families came together at the Youth Opportunity Group Play Centre in Cirencester to celebrate CDCC turning six years old.
The group was founded and set up by GDA Trustee, Jackie Gloyn, in 2011, who recognised that there was no such group in Cirencester to support children aged 0 to 8yrs, who are living with hearing loss. The club, held on the first Saturday of the month, now regularly attracts 20-plus children to the sessions where they enjoy a range of themed activities and entertainment from local performers including musical acts, Tweedy the Clown and even a rather friendly barn owl!
This weekend though, to celebrate getting another year old, the group enjoyed Easter themed activities, including a very popular Easter Egg Hunt and making Easter baskets. A cake made by the club leader, Nic Hewlett, finished off the celebrations perfectly.
CDCC is a fun, vibrant and engaging club which is open to children with any level of hearing loss, and also children who have Deaf parents. It is a chance to meet new friends, learn new skills and experience new experiences in a supportive and total communication environment - whether a child chooses to communicate using British Sign Language (BSL) or orally, they will be included in all the activities. New members are welcome any time, for more information please contact the GDA office on 01452 372999 or email email@example.com.
