How Things Can Change

How things can change.

Last week a ‘On This Day’ post popped up on my Facebook Timeline. It was this one from exactly a year ago.

This post was most definitely the start of something for me.  As many of you are aware this year I have become something I never envisioned I would become…  A Campaigner!!! A campaigner in fact mainly about a subject I have never previously thought about. I am a Toilet Campaigner. Not just any old toilets, Changing Places Toilets.  I do ‘branch out’ from time to time, and also see myself as a Campaigner of Disability Rights, Accessibility and Inclusion. I have to admit though, most of my time is wrapped up campaigning Changing Places Toilets.

What are Changing Place Toilets?

Work in Progress – The new Splash Park

I do applaud Watford borough Council in all the work they have done.
All is still not complete for me. I still am very keen to make sure there are as many Play possibilities as possible. I believe ALL parks should be ‘Inclusive’. ALL parks should have at least one piece of Wheelchair  Accessible Play Equipment. 00ae3-13709783_790503757753370_5350472320533902171_n
