to enable the residents of Southwold to communicate with confi dence. Hearing loss affects 1 in 6 people in the UK and it takes 10 years on average before those who have noticed a loss in their hearing choose to seek help. Research has also proven that other than a reduced quality and experience of life, hearing loss can also lead to cognitive decline resulting in conditions such as depression and dementia.

which is a family-run business with 26 centres across East Anglia, will hold a special Hearing Care Day at their clinic in Sole Bay Health Centre, Southwold on Thursday 31st October from 9am until 5pm. Complimentary hearing assessments will be on offer at the event, as well as professional advice from The Hearing Care Centre’s award winning team to help you hear to your full potential.

Karen Finch, founder and lead audiologist at The Hearing

Care Centre Halesworth Men's Shed said, “Making

the decision to book a hearing assessment really can be life- changing.

Those who take

action to treat their hearing loss report improvements in their overall quality of life and this has a positive impact on one’s relationships by improving their ability to communicate effectively.” o fi nd out more information or to book an appointment, call The Hearing Care Centre on Freephone 0800 096 2637 or visit solebay

EVENTS for Southwold Library for October: Monday 7th October, 11am Schrödinger’s Clock®: Playing with Time: A Talk by Antony Hurden. Schrödinger’s Clock® is the latest addition to the clock collection in Moyse’s Hall.

In this light-hearted talk, Antony Hurden will be telling the story behind this clock, which draws its inspiration from the works of Lewis Carroll, Salvador Dali, and

Albert Einstein.

There will also be the chance to see this unusual clock he invented. Free Event. Saturday 12th October, 10am - 4pm, Southwold Treasure Hunt. Part of Suffolk Libraries Day.

How to suspect you may have an allergy

Any unexplained symptom, including rash, wheezing, eczema, tired after meals, headaches, hayfever, reacting to smells or pollution, bloating, IBS, dandruff, spots, thrush, hyperactivity, feeling tired all the time, weight gain or loss, etc.

Singing. The Cut Choir has been going for just nine months and has already performed on BBC Radio Suffolk, at the Aldeburgh Festival on the bandstand, at the Southwold Arts Festival in a pop-up opera evening, and to bargain hunters at the Halesworth Antiques Fair. We are doing well and gaining in confi dence and polish under the tuition of Alex Campkin and Rob Gildon, but it would be lovely to have a few more voices, especially male, to strengthen our sound. Some of us have been in choirs before but others haven’t. No

experience is needed, nor

ability to read music, just enthusiasm. We aim to sing all sorts of music from show songs to folk to Flanders & Swan. We are lucky to have living

locally two such accomplished musical talents as Alex and Rob. Alex is an internationally renowned composer who is also Composer in Residence to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Resounds.

Rob is

equally well respected as a fi ne baritone with a particular interest in musical education. If you would like to see what a friendly bunch we are come to The Cut basement any Tuesday evening 7pm-9pm. Each session costs just £6. The Cut choir needs you!
