A MOBILE service has been reorganised for people with hearing loss.

The free facility, set up by the Hertfordshire Hearing Advisory Service (HHAS), provides advice and support to people affected, as well as basic hearing aid maintenance and new batteries.

However, last year it was forced to stop because the van used had broken down and HHAS was unable to raise enough funds to replace it.

But now a smaller, cheaper vehicle has been bought so the service can get back on the road.

HHAS chief executive Philip Linnegar said: "Although we were disappointed to not raise more money, the new service is actually better for clients as they can wait in a warm waiting room until called and don't have to go up any steps to get into the van."

The service will be making monthly visits to various locations in Times Territory.

To find out when it's in your neighbourhood, visit www.hhas.org.uk or contact the charity on 01707 324582.
