Cued Speech UK is on the move!
Cued Speech UK is moving to new offices in Totnes, Devon.
Gone are the sloping floors and draughty rooms in the old Forces Tavern at Blackawton; The building has served us well as our headquarters since March in 2016, nearly three years, in the heart of the beautiful South Hams of Devon, allowing us to prepare for bigger and better things. It has not been the first time the old tavern has served as a place to make big plans; rumour has it, that it provided a venue for Churchill and his advisors, to plan rehearsals on Devon’s Slapton Sands for the D-Day landings into occupied Europe, during world war II. However, these days, it has often been difficult for our staff and visitors to travel to such a remote location, which can only really be reached by car. We have all become expert rally divers, well-practiced on country lanes and able to reach those families in need of Cued Speech, whatever the weather! Although we have now outgrown our old location, we shall all look back fondly on a building that has supported our revitalisation into a future-facing charity with exciting plans for the years ahead.
Our new home, Totnes has an international reputation for its lively and diverse community and relaxed atmosphere; a charming market town that sits in the breathtakingly beautiful countryside of South Devon on the banks of the River Dart. Our new riverside offices at The Boatshed provide inspiring views over the river and a peaceful location for our meetings, training workshops and service innovations. Visiting families with deaf children and hearing professionals will find it much easier to get to us now by road or rail and we are updating our office communications. Having been at the old Forces Tavern, our new offices will place us firmly into the 21 Century, with plenty of space to allow for our recent growth and to give us the platform we need to support delivery of our new services and our expansion of Cued Speech into new areas.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us with our move and enabled us to improve our office surroundings. So, from now on ‘see what Cued Speech UK is saying’ at The Boatshed!
