Accessible Golf is back on!

Posted 24th September 2020
Accessible Golf has been a popular Dyscover activity for nearly 4 years and we are thrilled to welcome back 8 Members, plus relatives & volunteers, to Leatherhead Golf Club this Autumn.
This is the first opportunity to bring Members face-to-face again after the long months of remote contact. Previous golfers mingled with brand new members whist the relatives benefitted enormously from the valuable support they give each other.
Suzanne said “it is a joy to be back!”

Office re-opening

Posted 16th September 2020

As our Autumn term fast approaches we’ve had some good news from our landlords as Leatherhead Court will re-open next week!
We will have a phased return for our staff to the office with all of our services remaining on-line this year. Some staff will continue to work from home so that we can continue to socially distance and limit sharing offices as much as possible, but the team look forward to having some face to face contact with one another and being on hand to answer the phone!

Autumn Term Starts

Posted 16th September 2020

So great to start our 14 week Autumn term yesterday with some carefully managed face to face planning sessions for our staff team and groups of volunteers. Plenty of chat and creative planning – watch this space!

Storm Francis didn’t stop our gardeners

Posted 9th September 2020

Sue, Elaine and David were not perturbed by Storm Francis and did a grand job in the courtyard at Leatherhead on Tuesday, Alice says ‘it was really good to see them – the office has been very lonely and quiet – we had a chat and were all feeling ready for life to start moving on, with Elaine welcoming next weeks school re-opening (and me very much in agreement – almost a bit excited) and David having been to eat out, enjoying some red meat (which they don’t have at home) and Sue couldn’t help wonder what the consequences of all this will have on society – normal conversations, in person, sharing our thoughts & feelings – it felt like Dyscover again’.

Photography Summer Session

Posted 19th August 2020

Paul, Dyscover Member for just over 3 years, wrote and presented his own Zoom session on Photography. He described how he came to love photography after his Stroke. He went on to show Members the keys to success when taking Macro, Landscape and Portrait photos. He said he found it challenging because of his aphasia, but welcomed the challenge and really enjoyed doing it.
Maggie said after the session “Brilliant Paul!!! Thank you so much, you’ve inspired me….!
