Belper Ramps It Up
Belper has taken another step forward in making itself the Most Accessible Town in Derbyshire. Accessible Belper, with funding support from The Central England Cooperative Society, have bought three ramps to be shared amongst the local independent shops. This will allow access to some premises for wheelchair users, pushchairs and other people with mobility issues.
Customers who may not be able to manage the steps into their favourite shops or eateries can now ring in advance of their visit to book the ramps. They simply have to look up the phone number of where they want to visit on the business’s own website or check out the business survey page at www.accessiblebelper.org.
On Saturday 23rd February Accessible Belper officially launched the ramps with the help of the Belper Town Council Mayor Tim Sutton. This is another major step forward in welcoming every resident and visitor to the delights of Belper Town, whatever their needs.
The ramps will be stored at The Perfect Cuppa on Strutt Street, Time and Again on King Street and Cheeky Bambini on Bridge Street.
Barriers are being broken down in every way, in the Most Accessible Town in Derbyshire.
