It was the end of an era at CDA in October when our familiar but elderly signs were replaced.

Deaf Trustee Godfrey Palmer,

a retired sign writer, made the signs and put them up in the 1990's. He came back on a bright Tuesday morning in October, nearly 20 years later, to take them down again. Didn't they do well?

Here's Godfrey with the new

sign which shows off some of what today's CDA offers to the community.

Mr Palmer has been a trustee of CDA for over 10 years and is current vice-chairperson.

Cambridgeshire County Council

want you to be more involved in the consultations and decisions

that they make.

They have produced some new guidance called ‘Working Together with Cambridgeshire County Council’ to let people know what they can expect when they are looking to change a service or hold a consultation.

Working with CDA, the Council

have produced this video which is

a translation of the ‘Working

Together’ document which explains how the Council will take into account the views of people who live in the area.

The Council commit to providing information in a range of languages, including BSL. You can watch the video on our website. In the video is Charlene Spires from Peterborough who is also a

sign language tutor for CDA’s Sign Language Academy.

All the work for the video was done in-house using equipment from the new studio room being developed at Hope Hall.

We’ve been featured on BSL

Zone (TV Channel for deaf people) after featuring their Who Cares? Documentary in our deaf awareness training to the Manor Care Home recently.

The documentary looks at elderly care provision for Deaf people and was used to support training at a care home with a deaf resident.

The training was delivered by

CDA’s Andy Palmer and Ruth Godden for staff at the Manor Care Home which is run by Leonard Cheshire Disability.

Andy said:"The film had a big impact. Who Cares really helps to illustrate the different needs of Deaf people in care. The

impact of poor communication

with Deaf residents isn’t always at the front of people’s minds in the Care Sector but watching Who Cares? and then discussing it changes that."

He added: "The delegates were moved to tears which showed the emotional impact of the documentary. Many of the

delegates said that the film

helped them understand what deaf people may feel like in care if communication isn't there."

CDA Advocate Ruth Godden

Palmer have been attending meetings to make sure that sign language users retain the use of deaf advocacy in the future.

Two meetings have also been held with deaf people at drop-in sessions where deaf people gave their views on advocacy provision in the county. There

were over 20 people present at each meeting.

UK members of audio enthusiasts forum Head - Fi have donated money the Cambridgeshire Deaf

UK members of audio enthusiasts forum Head-Fi have donated money the Cambridgeshire Deaf Association for the second time.

A spokesperson for the group said: “On Saturday 25th April 2015 a group of audio enthusiasts held their annual meeting in Bar Hill Village Hall.

“We are members of an online forum (www.head-fi.org) that concentrates on personal audio, so equipment like headphones, amplifiers and digital audio players. The forum rationale is very much about

supporting each other and offering help and advice to new members.

“Every year we hold a national

event and attendees bring their

gear for fellow members to

audition and try out. This years charity raffle raised £1,300 and

we would like to donate this sum to the Cambridgeshire Deaf Association.

“Our reason for choosing to support the CDA is simple, as an organisation it provides invaluable assistance to deaf people enabling them to live independent lives, which is crucial to a persons sense of

well being and personal fulfilment”

Andy Palmer, Managing Director of CDA said: “The generosity of Head-Fi members in the UK is something we

really appreciate. Their support means we can work on important projects supporting the independence of deaf

people in Cambridgeshire.

“Without the support of the people in Head-Fi UK we wouldn’t be able to do all the things we do. Thank you!”

We have been fortunate that David has been volunteering for CDA for a number of years and in that time set up the office network system, maintained staff computers and set up the Wifi sys- tem in the hall and bar.

After more than two years hard work, David decided to stand down from his roles in October and he leaves the charity’s IT systems in a far better state than he found them in. Thanks again, David! CDA is now looking for a new professional IT services provider.

Peterborough United’s deaf football were defeated by a late Barnet goal in the English Deaf League Southern Division on Saturday 10 th October.

The Posh had got themselves back into the game after going two-nil down. Qadeer Hussain from Peterborough scored both but then local lad Matthew Wheeler, who is from Chatteris but plays for Barnet, lobbed the keeper in the dying minutes to win the game.

Peterborough Manager, Steve Long, who is learning sign language with CDA’s Sign Language Academy, said he was disappointed with the

result but thought that there were positives.

Peterborough’s next game is away to Charlton on 25

October at 2pm. The good

news was that Peterborough won their first ever deaf league match at home against Brighton and won the match 4- 1 with Qadeer Hussain, Michael Bedford and Stephen Sear getting the goals.
