LETTER TO EDITOR: Bigger disabled platform needed next year please!

August 5, 2019

It was a sad situation when some disabled people were unable to gain access to the viewing platform to see Kylie and other acts on the main stage at Pride.

THE inadequate provision for the disabled and chronically ill to view the stage was further frustrated as those of us trapped in the access tent could see dozens of empty seats in the adjacent VIP viewing area.

The situation was disgraceful as some had to try and find some space on the main arena to get a view of one of the screens amongst the many thousands of able bodied people.

Next year we hope that a larger platform will be provided for the disabled.

Yours sincerely

Colin Barton, Chairman,
Sussex & Kent ME Society
