Dyslexia House Association's 2021 AGM 15th September on Zoom

Ten people attended our AGM on Zoom. Sam Rapp our chairman said that due to Covid we had not been able to organise any events this year but with the lifting of restrictions she hoped that in the coming year will be able to offer a range of activities, from face-to-face meetings, Zoom meetings and Webinars.


It is with great sadness we have to report the passing of our Treasurer Penny Modena. Penny, although a tiny lady filled the room with her bubbly personality and great sense of humour. She will be sadly missed.
