LETTER: Disabled need to have access

We have had our timetable of events for the coming season at the Under Ground Theatre. It is an interesting and varied programme, with something for everyone. Everyone? Well, almost, for there is still no disabled access.

If they can’t even provide a lift, then they should hold some of the events elsewhere. Or why not relay the Saturday music to another room in the library building?

I’ve been a member almost since it started and still dutifully pay my subscription along with an occasional donation as well, but I do feel that they should get up to date and not just shrug it off. I’ve become disabled following some falls and other problems, but don’t as yet use a wheelchair, so some kind of lift for even limited access would help, just to get into the café, if not the auditorium itself. This complacent attitude must change. The volunteers deserve better and so do the patrons.
