To celebrate the UN’s International Day for Persons with Disabilities, the 3rd of December, Devon Contract Waste are sponsoring Pony Access to make Burgh Island wheelchair accessible for the day.
Obama, the pony, will be pulling the iBex Saddlechariot, wheelchair enabled, safe, all terrain vehicle, providing wheelchair access to an area that was previously inaccessible.
John Seamons of Scoot Along, and friends, will be demonstrating wheelchair beach access, and showing that only the British think December a perfect time to go to the beach.
Come along to watch, and if we have time, have a go on the 3rd Of December
In addition Devon Contract Waste is sponsoring Pony Access to make Emouth Beach wheelchair accessible from the Harbour View Cafe, on the 30th November and Exmouth Estuary on the 1st of December.
Contact Simon at Pony Access to have a go on 07510 736518.
People have impairments, not disabilities. It is society that disables people – see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_model_of_disability
Firstly I am quoting the UN, so why not have a go at them. Secondly, is that really all you have to say about my work? Thirdly, I as a member of society, am doing my best to open up access for everyone. Am I disabling you in the process?
Fourthly, I have read the article on impairment/disability, and although there are a lot of valid points, it left me with an overpowering desire to give up. It seemed that every action I take as someone without visible, or documented impairments, is automatically wrong.
Do you have any pictures of when you came to windmill feeds in Uckfield?
I have a video which might amuse you. http://youtu.be/gVfNl5BVGMU Hope to be down in Sussex again soon working with a group of young adults with disabilities in Barcombe. Will bring Obama round again when I am in sussex.
