WEST MERCIA SIGN CHOIR SUPPORT OUR CHRISTMAS LIGHT SWITCH ON
We would like to give a big thank you to West Mercia Sign Choir who joined us for the Telford Centre Christmas light switch on last week and provided sign language support during the switch on to make the event more accessible to our deaf community.
Comment from a representative from West Mercia Police reads: “We have been learning British Sign language in our job roles to be Police Liaison Officer for the Deaf (PLOD), for West Mercia Police. We have been doing this so that we can work more closely with the deaf Community. We have received training provided by Just Sign Up Ltd and have officers from Telford and Shrewsbury policing areas. We have been training for 18 weeks and we wanted an opportunity to use our new skill. S we were delighted to be involved in Telford Centres Christmas Light Switch on event and we signed two Christmas songs during the switch on.”
