BDA Survey closes 27th November 2015!

With only 100 replies & just two days to go until this survey closes your participation would be greatly appreciated.

“The Bowls Development Alliance launched the first nationwide survey regarding disabled participation in bowls to develop a greater understanding of the current and future opportunities that exist for disabled bowlers and which clubs currently have disabled bowlers using their facilities. The 2014 survey saw 243 clubs respond which resulting in valuable insight that proved crucial when developing the National Disability Strategic Action Plan as well as in guiding clubs and organisations to create more opportunities for disabled bowlers to take part in our sport.

Due to the success of the 2014 Survey, the BDA announced on the 2nd August the launch of the 2015 National Disability Survey which is now open for responses via hard copy fromwww.playbowls.org or electronically via https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NationalDisabilitySurvey2015 until Friday, 27th November, 2015.

Those taking part in the survey have an opportunity to enter a prize draw where the winner will receive a blue Ultraglide DX Bowls Bag, courtesy of AeroBowls.”

The Danish Girl-The remarkable love story inspired by the lives of artists Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener. In 1920s Copenhagen, Gerda’s painting of her husband, depicted as a lady, gains popularity and sees both their marriage and work evolve as they navigate Lili’s ground breaking journey as a transgender pioneer.

Audio Aids
Sennheiser Infra Red enhanced hearing headsets are available in the Old Market Hall to amplify sound for hard of hearing patrons. They can be worn with or without a hearing aid.

What are Caption Subtitles?
Deaf or hearing impaired customers who cannot use our audio aids because of incompatibility with their hearing aid, or due to a greater level of hearing loss, may rely on subtitling to let them ‘hear’ the film dialogue (in the same way hearing customers rely on subtitles to understand a foreign language film).

These Caption Subtitles provide much more information than “normal” English subtitles. They also inform the cinema goer when something is sung rather then spoken, when significant music is happening, often providing the lyrics, or of significant sound effects (eg phone rings, doorbell chimes, etc) – especially those taking place off screen.

Booking Information:

If you have a disability you are entitled to receive 50% discount off full price seats. Should you need the service of a companion, their ticket is also half price. Proof of eligibility will be required. Patrons must state discounts and produce proof of eligibility at the time of booking, as discounts cannot be applied retrospectively.

Matinee and early evening showings:

Adults: £7.50
Concessions: £6
To book Wheelchair/Disabled concessions and groups of 10 or more, please contact the Box Office on 01743 281281 between 11 am and 7 pm, Monday to Saturday

End Date:
19th November 2015

Start Time:
7.30 pm

End Time:

Event title: Hospital provision in Shropshire

Name: Penny Rice
Email:[email protected]
Telephone: 01691 680382
Event description: There are too many questions being left in the air after our October meeting. For example:

  • Why is Shropshire CCG in special measures?
  • Why wasn’t a decision about the future of our hospital provision made on October 1st as promised?
  • How much is this all costing?
  • What exactly is an Urgent Care Centre? And will we get one if we don’t have any beds in Oswestry?
  • What is happening about Community Fit?
  • We have two very senior representatives from NHS Future Fit coming over to tell us what the current situation is.

They will be here to answer our questions and address our concerns. So please be there to ask them.

This links to their most recent bulletin:
http://nhsfuturefit.org/our-news/72-nhs-future-fit-to-continue-to-work-to-meet-challenges-forlocal-patients
Admission will be £1 at the door. By using The Centre, we are hoping that some of the young people who use The Centre will get involved.

Address: The Movement Centre, Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Hospital, Oswestry, SY10 7AG

We are a charity based in Oswestry, Shropshire, supporting children from across the UK,  with cerebral palsy, developmental delays and other problems of movement control. Drawing on specialist physiotherapists and bioengineers, we have developed Targeted Training, a highly effective and evidence based movement control therapy.

Targeted Training can help improve movement and independence for children with various degrees of disability. Targeted Training mimics the natural development of control in newborn infants, while the child is up against gravity; an approach not adopted by any other centre.  During the 9 – 12 month course of Targeted Training a specially designed standing frame is used. Each frame is tailored and adjusted to the child’s specific requirements. The frame goes home with the child so they can repeat their exercises daily, with regular 8 week reviews at the centre.

We use standardised, internationally recognised outcome measures to monitor a child’s progression through their course of Targeted Training. Evidence has shown that a child is 3-4 times more likely to gain functional skills with the addition of Targeted Training than with conventional physiotherapy alone. By intervening early with Targeted Training, future equipment, medical and carer needs are likely to be reduced. Gaining essential functional skills through Targeted Training can increase independence, confidence and educational opportunities and have a lifetime impact.

Please contact us or visit our website to find out about referrals to The Movement Centre and for more information about Targeted Training therapy.

Shropshire Deaf & Hard of Hearing Forum

Start Date:
3rd February 2016

End Date:
3rd February 2016

Start Time:
2 pm

End Time:
4 pm

Event title: Shropshire Deaf & Hard of Hearing Forum
Venue: Trinity Centre, Meole Brace, Shrewsbury SY3 9HF
Name: Hugh Battersby
Email: [email protected]
Telephone: 01691-624669
Event description: We would be pleased if you would join us for our first meeting of 2016.

We have guest speakers to welcome:

  • Wendy Southall, lead commissioner for, inter alia, audiology services at Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group, will talk to us about future arrangements for the provision of hearing aids, especially under the Any Qualified Provider scheme. This really is a subject of vital interest to all of us. Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin CCGs have always been extremely helpful and cooperative, and fund an excellent audiology service at the two hospitals, but there are serious financial problems at the moment. We all need to attend, to show our interest and to make clear the fact that untreated deafness makes people miserably lonely and prone to far more serious – and expensive – problems, not the least being dementia.
  • Lyndon Thomas, a Hearing Link volunteer, will explain how the Text Relay System works.
  • Darren Wilkins, Head of Paediatric Audiology Services at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust will talk about their services for children and young people.
