Extract from BBC News:

Deaf people in Bristol who are upset because they had to sell their social club building have started a campaign for a new one.

The Centre for Deaf People, a charity, sold its premises to pay off a pension deficit.

Trustee Sandra Smith said deaf people in Bristol “needed a new base”.

Plans for the new centre include recruiting a fundraiser, a book keeper and setting up a website.

The original centre was established in 1962 and became a focal meeting point for Bristol’s deaf community – complete with its own skittle alley.
