A new support group in Burntwood is offering advice and help for people who have hearing issues.

The Hear to Meet gatherings will take place between 1pm and 3pm on the first Thursday of every month from 7th November.

Held at St John’s Community Church in Chase Terrace, the group is for people who wear hearing aids or are worried about their hearing.

A spokesperson said: “It’s an opportunity to meet up over a cup of tea or coffee and exchange experiences.

“There will be free and confidential advice and information, as well as talks on subjects related to hearing loss.”

For more information about the free drop-in sessions call 07960 407595 or email gill.wyatt@hearingloss.org.uk.
