Members ideas for Accessible evening, December 3rd
Prior to the meeting on September 26th, we would please like you/your members to think about what would make your experience of shopping/eating/visiting town a little easier and what would encourage you to visit town more.
We are looking at identifying some problem areas and ideas for solutions to overcome them.
Please consider all areas, for example:
Customer service e.g. what do staff need to know or do to make your experience easier?
Signage – in store and out and about
Environment inside e.g. lighting, noise, obstructions, space etc
Transport and parking
We would really value your input as this will assist in informing training and awareness sessions that will be given to businesses and staff.
Please can you RSVP to Trudi Kent,firstname.lastname@example.org, 07781 163967 if you are attending the evening
Thank you for your continued support
