Summer BBQ 2018
Day trip to Hampton Court Saturday 14th July 2018
Bexley Deaf Club visited Hampton Court Palace Saturday 14th July 2018 a beautiful warm and sunny day. From Waterloo Station an easy comfortable train ride and then a five minute walk over Hampton Court Bridge to Hampton Court Palace where we were met by our two BSL interpreters. We spent nearly six hours exploring the buildings and the gardens. The interesting history of the Palace was fascinating, the rooms large and small filled with many old furniture, tapestries, paintings. The beautiful Palace Gardens were amazing, delightful and fun where was a jousting event was going on and we even saw Henry VIII (an actor) it was brilliant. The final part of our day was a lovely and relaxing Thames River boat trip from Hampton Court to Westminster Pier, with views of river banks and passing boats, people giving a friendly wave. We had a wonderful time, and everyone enjoyed the day from the start to the end.

On Friday 28th September, we were flying to Geneva from London City Airport.
We visited the big lake and see the great water fountain. Also we went to see the house where Charlie Chaplin lived in Vevey. The Big fork structure was placed on the lake in Vevey. We went to Interlake to visit waterfalls. Some of us went to the top of the mountain where the famous 007 film ‘On Her Majesty Secret Service’ was filmed. Very beautiful mountains to view. On the last day before go home, the weather was raining, we went to see UN headquarter and have some shoppings.
We enjoyed ourselves in Geneva!
Bexley Deaf Club organised family and friends members total 38 attended Christmas Pantomime Cinderella at Bromley Churchill theatre. It was an enjoyable evening for everyone despite the signer stand on the other side of the stage because of the fireworks that was set up on the stage where the signer should have been in that area near us. The theatre offered us each a free ice cream as well a nice surprised meet some of the actors after the show for their apologies about the signer who stand on the far end side of the stage.
We are looking forward to go back for 2019 Pantomime Aladdin and the theatre confirmed that they will ensure the signer to stand in the right area for us. If any of you want to buy a ticket please contact us.
