Hearing information eventJune 1st10am-4pmangliEAR Hearing, Grain House, Mill Court, Great Shelford. CB22 5LD


Do you have questions about your hearing? Unsure about the difference a hearing instrument can make to your life? Have NHS aids but they spend more time in a draw than on your ears? 

On Thursday 1st June between 10am & 4pm angliEAR Hearing will be holding a Hearing Information day. We invite you to pop along to our clinic, see what is available, chat about your hearing difficulties and meet the friendly team at angliEAR Hearing. 

If mobility is an issue and getting to the clinic a problem, don’t worry we can come to you – just call us and we’d be happy to help.

An rsvp isn’t essential but would be appreciated. If you can’t make this date call us and we’d be happy to arrange a more convenient time.

Call 01223 661399 for more information
