Trip to Gloucester

Recently Zebra Access and members from the Black Country deaf community took a train from Birmingham to Gloucester, We all sat together and chatted on the train through the beautiful British countryside

Upon arrival we walked to the Gloucester Cathedral to meet the deaf community from Gloucester and Jenny from Gloucester Deaf Association (GDA). 

We had a BSL interpreted tour inside the Gloucester Cathedral, the tour guide, Rod took us around the Cathedral and explained about the history of the Cathedral and we all learned so much about the cathedral.  There was a lot of beautiful colourful glass to look at and lots of tombs as well. 

Afterward we were guided to catch a number 10 bus to Gloucester Deaf Association where there is hot lunch of fish and chips await us. 

We all chatted with members of the deaf community from Gloucester, and we also played Bingo and Raffle- many of us won very nice prizes!

We had a fabulous Day and caught bus back to station and train back home totally exhausted. 

We had a great day out and we would like to say thank you to Gloucester Deaf Association for arranging a great day out. We can’t wait for you to visit us soon!
