Many thanks to Thomas McWhinney for the fun introduction to British Sign Language (BSL) last Sunday. Have you done your homework – can you finger-spell your first name? See a reminder of the alphabet above to help you.
If you would be interested in learning more BSL, perhaps with regular sessions from a tutor, please let Linda know at
