News from the SVI office 13 January 2016

A message from Sandra Troth, SVI Development Worker

I hope you are all keeping warm now we are at last having some chilly weather, even though sadly the rain keeps falling…well at least it isn’t snowing…yet!

It was a horrid morning on Tuesday when a group of SVI members arrived for the first arts workshop session at SCIPS in Oldbury. Richard and Ruth who led the group said that the day was lifted with lots of laughter as those who had braved the rain, got to grips with Celtic painting. Ruth will be leading next week’s session which will be clay work, which I know lots of people have said they would like to try out.

In 9 January's Talking News there was an article about Online Today IT training and we held our second set of workshops at the Deaf Resource Centre on Tuesday 12 January. The sessions are very popular and filled up the very first day the centre reopened after the Christmas break. We are holding some more in late February, so if you are interested, call the office and get your name down early to avoid disappointment.

Another article in the Talking News that interested me, was the one about the Boombox Mini. It’s a very small boombox USB player with built in FM radio, a voice recorder and as I understand allows you to record on to the USB stick. It was a reasonable price and I wondered if anyone had one and could give other listeners feedback.

As many of you will know, SVI had some new Management Committee members elected at our Annual Forum and AGM in November, so over the next few months, we would like them to be interviewed for the Talking News, so that you get to know them and the work they do for SVI.

Well that’s all for this week, do keep warm and we’ll have more news for you soon.
