Access Panel Awareness Day - Pictures

On Tuesday the 14th the Nairn Access Panel run their annual Access Awareness Day in the Community and Arts Centre. Auldearn, Cawdor, Millbank and Rosebankd primary schools took part and experienced a set of “hands on” workshops. This year the panel enjoyed the participation of Deaf Awareness Services from Dingwall, the Aviemore Disabled Ski School who brought along their equipment. There were also several other workshops involving a wheelchair course for the children, a visual impairment corner involving a guide dog and a handler and a table with various pieces of assistance equipment for the children to try.
The Panel also presented their Access Awareness Award, this year the recipient was Lyods Pharmacy.

Thanks to Liz Bow of the Access Panel for the images in the slideshow below. Individual images here.

It was a great event and the kids got a huge amount from it in terms of understanding the challenges that disability can present and the ingenious ways and strength of conviction required to overcome these obstacles. Well done & thanks to all participants - been doing it for 5 years, great! Kids loved it.
