I'm so so happy you had such a wonderful day and I'm looking forward to hopefully taking part in much more, I'm currently learning how to swim which helps my disability but I'm also on the lookout for some locally based groups in and around the Matson GL4 4BA area so i can use my mobility scooter to get to places so reading about your fab day has given me more hope and please keep in touch thank you for listening xxx

Thanks for sharing this Sally. Having a 'community power' event gives such a strong message to others about whats possible when people come together. I'm glad you had fun, despite the rain!

It was great for me to go with a friend too - thanks Ceri! And thanks for writing this - it's reminding me that I'd like to go to more in the future. I really enjoyed the session and would never have gone if you hadn't suggested it :)

Thanks for sharing this Ceri, the idea of focusing on a 'human being' rather than a 'human doing' is a great suggestion
