A Norfolk business is helping the country become all ears as it hosts hearing loss workshops.

The Hearing Care Centre has 26 locations across East Anglia and has organised a fortnight of hearing loss sessions to encourage people to take the first steps towards better hearing.

The team, led by Norfolk audiologist Simon Myhill, will be offering free appointments for hearing assessments and advice at its centres in Hethersett, Aylsham, Dereham, Norwich, Watton, Attleborough and Hoveton.

Karen Finch, founder and lead audiologist at The Hearing Care Centre said: "Hearing loss is a real issue in the UK. More often than not it's a gradual process, it's not always easy to tell if you're losing your hearing.

"Therefore it is so important to have your hearing assessed on a regular basis to intervene at the earliest stage possible."

The sessions will be held between Monday, June 10 until Friday June 21.
