People in Weston who are deaf or hard of hearing will now have access to more resources to combat any financial or personal problems they may have, thanks to a community grant.

The Quartet Community Foundation has awarded Citizens Advice North Somerset £2,500 which will go towards providing interpreters.

The presentation took place at the monthly communication café at Coffee #1 in High Street.

Derek Boardman told the Mercury it is important those who cannot hear get support in person.

He said: “It is important we get the help in person and this café is a good way for us to mix too as we can talk to each other on a regular basis.”
