Macclesfield Express - - NEWS -

A DEAF club cel­e­brated its 35th birth­day with an spe­cial choir per­for­mance.

Macclesfield Deaf Club mem­bers and vol­un­teers gath­ered at the Pack Horse So­cial and Bowl­ing Club on Abbey Road and were joined by the Dee Sign Choir.

The choir per­formed a num­ber of pop­u­lar songs us­ing Bri­tish Sign Lan­guage set to music.

MP for Macclesfield David Rut­ley also at­tended the party, or­gan­ised by Ju­dith Kidd, club chair­per­son and Ruth James, trea­surer.

Speak­ing af­ter the event, David said: “It was a plea­sure to cel­e­brate this im­pres­sive mile­stone for the Deaf Club.

“I was par­tic­u­larly moved by the Dee Sign Choir, whose per­for­mance was a par­tic­u­lar high­light.

“This im­por­tant an­niver­sary for the club is a tes­ta­ment to the great work done by its vol­un­teers and I’d like to thank Ju­dith, Ruth and the team for all their ef­forts.”

The club has met at the Mayfield Cen­tre and the Macclesfield Dis­abil­ity In­for­ma­tion Bureau in the past and now meets in the Macclesfield of­fices of the Deaf­ness Sup­port Network on Bridge Street.
