Getting Out And About At Nene Park

The Nene Park Trust is working on plans to improve access to Ferry Meadows, Orton Mere and Thorpe Meadows for visitors with disabilities. The Trust is aiming to make Nene Park a top countryside site that is even more accessible and welcoming to everyone.

Local disabled people have been involved in the project right from the start. The local Disability Forum Manager for DIAL Peterborough worked with the Nene Park Trust's Visitor Services Manager to appoint specialists to carry out an Access Audit for the Park and to make recommendations for improvement. Jan Loveless and Sarah Douglas of Access Matters UK have been appointed and have started work already. They're doing a survey of visitors and residents, talking to visitors in the park, and inviting people with disabilities to join a focus group to look at ways of making the access even better. Jan and Sarah said:

We're delighted to have been appointed and would love to find out your opinions on accessibility at the Park. We welcome all suggestions for ways of improving access for everyone  - however wild and whacky! Please contact Jan and Sarah and tell us what you think.
