Next CI Southern Social: Westgate Winchester

The Westgate pub in Winchester is the venue for the next CI Southern Counties Social! Please see below for their invite:



  • It serves food and drink all day and sounds extremely welcoming!
  • Dogs welcomed with open arms!
  • Well lit for lipreading.
  • It’s a grade II listed pub, so the toilets are down 10 steps to lower floor. Otherwise, the location is all on street level.


Town Centre parking nearby
All park and rides will stop at Westgate, however Pitt and South Winchester car park points are the closest park and rides. 
2 minutes walk from the end of the High Street.
5/10 minutes walk from the Winchester mainline Station.

For our new members – a huge welcome. You will find all our members are most happy to chat about their experiences.  Many members may even tell you that they were nervous coming to their first Social…. but they soon float away (the nerves, not the people!) once we find like minded people who share communication struggles and giggles.  Some of us sign.  Some of us don’t.  Some of us lipread well.  Some of us don’t.  Some of us are local, some are not.  Some are over 50 years older, and some are not! 😎 We are a mixed bunch!

We welcome all Cochlear Implant users, their families and friends, children, Hearing Dogs, Guide Dogs, and anyone considering an Implant. 

It can be a lonely frustrating world out there with hidden disabilities; our Socials are a breath of fresh air for many. 

Hope to see you there!

Best wishes
Sandra and Caroline.
