Pistons in the Park

We’ve contacted the organisers with regard to disabled parking (free) and access ( free) access for carers who need to attend with disabled people.

See message below ( contact via page) if more info required

Disabled people do indeed get free parking. Just make sure your disabled pass is clearly displayed on arrival and our stewards will guide you to the correct location. Yes I can send special carer tickets to your email address if you let me know how many you need.

We do indeed have disabled toilets and these are located in the main Epic Centre building.

The site is generally quite accessible but one thing I would note is with regards to wheel chairs these might struggle in the picnic area – see site plan attached to this email.

On the passing of Nigel Webster

It is with great sadness that i have to report that Nigel Webster of Disability Network West Lindsey (DNWL) passed away on Monday the 31st of July.

Nigel was an amazing man, who’s knowledge, resourcefulness, and charm will be greatly missed both locally in Gainsborough and across Lincolnshire. He was foremost in ensuing that help and assistance was given to those who where disabled and in need. He worked voluntarily right till the end even though he himself was very ill for a number of years. He never shied away from what needed to be done or said. He was a forefront member and supporter of Lincolnshire Independent Living and supported the work we did without hesitation.
I will personally and professionally miss him a great deal, his legacy and shoes will be impossible hard to fill, but he leaves behind for me  and others the idea and principles as to  the kind of person who we should strive to be.

NHS England is keen to find out more about your experiences, awareness and understanding of personal health budgets.

To do this iMPOWER are running this survey on behalf of NHS England asking a number of specific questions about personal health budgets and how they are being applied. To help us do this we need about 15 minutes of your time to complete this survey. You don’t need to have a personal budget or have heard of them to complete the survey.
