Surrey Cricket Foundation has been given funding by Lambeth council to run a 6-month pilot cricket programme aimed at Deaf/Hearing students, which they are looking to start before March. Gavin Reynolds, Cricket Participation Officer, says: “We are looking to run a 20 week pilot programme that involves a regular cricket session, this could be something during the daytime or an afterschool club. We would look to target the age groups of children between 11-18 years old for the pilot. Although would also be happy with children from year groups 5 & 6 in primary school if they were keen to get involved. We would then look to encourage them to potentially link in with a number of other projects that are running around London and other areas if they enjoyed their cricket.
We shall be running a workshop and practical signing session at the Kia Oval, Kennington, London, SE11 5SS on Wednesday 5th December -10am – 3.30pm. Agenda attached.
Is there anyone from a service or school who may wish to come along and discuss some of the matters on the day, even if it’s just for a morning or something. It would be very nice to have some input/personal experiences.
We would like to hear from anyone that is positive and open to speaking and can contact me on email or call on the numbers below.
