Deaf club changes name to Harrow United Deaf Club
A club which helps and supports deaf people in the community has changed its name to encompass the whole borough.
At Harrow Asian Deaf Club's annual meeting, members agreed the organisation will become the sole club for the borough and will change its name to Harrow United Deaf Club.
The move comes after the closure of Harrow Deaf Club nearby just over six months ago and it is hoped the new name will show the inclusive nature of the group.
President of the club, Asif Iqbal MBE, said: “With the new name, we are excited to be more inclusive and I look forward to more welcoming more new people of diverse communities.
“Also I would like to congratulate our new chairman Samir Gathani and vice-chairman Sindhuya Saseetharan, together with the new committee members of young deaf volunteers who have supported our work, we are delighted to have them on board and being part of the new changes."
After the vote the club held its annual Halloween party at the Bentley Day Centre which included a fancy dress competition, bobbing for apples and a Halloween Piñata.
