Children to greet 'Listening Bus'
Ear
The exhibition will include the latest hearing aids for children
A mobile exhibition of the latest hearing aids and technology for children is visiting Guernsey this weekend.

The 'Listening Bus' is being brought to the island by the National Deaf Children's Society.

The bus travels around the British Isles, giving out information about the latest technology for children with hearing difficulties.

Equipment on show will include alarm clocks that shake under a pillow, flashing phones and doorbells and specially adapted smoke alarms.

Children and their families will also get the chance to speak to experts from the Society's technology service.

The Listening Bus will be outside the Town Church in St Peter Port from 1000 until 1500 BST on Saturday.
