October Update from Inclusion Southmead

Inclusion Southmead works for the benefit of all in the community, including elderly and disabled members regardless of whether a disability is visible or not. One of our priorities for 2018 is to achieve easy disabled access to McColl’s Arnside. Working alongside Cllr Brenda Massey and others we continue to press for progress.

Our other priority for 2018 is to achieve access for all to Doncaster Road Park. We are in discussion with Nick Ferris from the Council as to the best way to achieve this, and supported by the tireless work of our Councillors we have secured funding. Which moves us onto a conversation with local residents to understand any concerns, good and bad, which residents may have to fully opening up the park again so that we can all get on and enjoy this special place.

We are also investigating how we can make sports facilities in the community more accessible, inclusive and attractive for disabled children and adults in Southmead. So, if you have a yearning to become involved and help develop activities please come to our Inclusion Southmead meetings.

Next Meeting is: – Tuesday 9th October, Southmead Community Centre, 11.00 – 12.45.
