Auslan Training

Staff and volunteers recently completed a basic Auslan course provided by Access Plus. Did you know that almost 1 in 6 people will have a degree of hearing loss at some point in their life?  WA Deaf Recreation Club hold a number of activities at our Club and we are really pleased to see a number of new bowlers join our pennant team. We thank Access Plus, particularly Nobu and Betty for making Auslan such fun to learn. We hope to continue training and encourage everyone to learn sign language!

Thank you for your feedback

Thank you to those of you who completed the survey we sent out in June. We were pleased to read how much people appreciated the friendly ambience and services they received from staff. The Club strives to be a place that can be enjoyed and valued by our members and local community.

There were a number of comments in regard to the facilities, in particular the air-conditioners and accessible bathroom facilities. Club Management is currently working with the Town of Cambridge on replacing air conditioners and renovations to our Club rooms. We hope to have new air conditioners by the summer…watch this space. We are also pleased to let you know that we are currently working with Council on plans to upgrade bathroom facilities. Council have committed a million dollars in this year’s forward budget for 2022, so we are really hoping this transpires into upgrading the club to compliancy with disability access.

There was also feedback on the range of beverages. Peter our bar manager is introducing new drinks within the limitations of our bar size.

We also appreciated the feedback on suggestions on how the Club can celebrate our 60th birthday in October 2022. For those of you that have said you would be available to volunteer to help, please ensure you have provided your contact details to Christine. We will be starting to plan and work towards this milestone in the very near future.

New Sprinkler System

The Club has resourced a new water tank and sprinkler system for the new green, particular thanks to Bill and Robert who contributed significant labour to reduce costs. There were some early morning starts!
