LOOP SYSTEM

Just to remind members attending general meetings who are hard of hearing that a loop system is in place at Knutsford Methodist Church.  This is activated when the sound system is in use and hearing aids should be switched to the ‘T’ position.  Please contact the Technical Team if you experience any problems.
