A sign language course for adult beginners is to be launched in Great Yarmouth from September.

The Deaf Connexions Great Yarmouth group will be running the 26 week course from Monday, September 11 at St Nicholas Priory Junior School.

The charity says the course offers an opportunity to learn a new skill and communicate with the deaf community and hopefully make friends at the same time.

Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits will be provided for participants, who will be asked to make a minimum weekly contribution of £1.25 to meet the charity's costs.

The sign language sessions will run from 4pm and 5.30pm on Mondays at the school and Deaf Connexions say places for the course are limited.

The Deaf Connexions group have been running classes for seven years at the school.
