Success for Dundee Access Group - and the West End!

Rev Erik Cramb of the group welcoming everyone
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being part of a celebration at the Pacamara coffee shop and restaurant in Perth Road to record and celebrate the success of the Dundee Access Group in handing over the first portable ramp as part of the "Hannah's Highway" project - aimed at improving accessibility to local streets, shops and caf├ęs locally for all with mobility difficulties.

"Hannah's Highway" - named after local resident Hannah Craig - has now managed to purchase an initial three ramps and the first was handed across yesterday morning at the Pacamara - the other two will go to other businesses in Perth Road with hopefully more to follow.

We had a wee celebration at the Pacamara to recognise this achievement and here's a photo below of the official launch!    Well done to the Dundee Access Group for a real achievement in their extensive researching of ramps to get the most appropriate ones, fundraising for them and achieving a real improvement for all with mobility difficulties to use local facilities.

There was a good report on this on STV news last night that you can view here.
