The Market Cross – Wetherspoons – Extremely difficult to get to Disabled Toilet on “Busy Times” as it is right at the back and the premises are crammed full of tables & chairs.
Boars Head – Steps at front so access is via a side-ways sloping ramp at side. Very spacious inside however the Disabled toilet was used as a stock-room.
Feathers Inn – Access to rear bar only. No access to toilet.
Red Lion – No access to toilet.
Cross Vaults – STEP.
Tak Bo Chinese Take-Away & Restaurant – Very steep access ramp that is out of line with the entrance door and unable to manoeuvre around a support pillar at the top of the ramp. Highly recommend the other Chinese take-away “FU HOUSE” which has great access to take-away & tables.
Saunder’s Optician STEP – Very helpful staff provide a portable wheelchair ramp for access.
Shear Envy hairdressers STEP.
Pedrini Antiques & Collectibles STEP.
Denbighshire & Flintshire Agricultural Society Ltd STEP.

Artisan’s Cafe – * Damian’s gold award goes to Artisans Cafe which is fully accessible with lovely staff serving good value food & drink. Accessible toilet (To be checked out still !)

Santander Bank – Fully accessible including automatic door buttons and low counter. Friendly staff offering great customer service. As the only bank left in Holywell it shows that making changes to provide full access for all was a wise investment. “Damian’s Gold Star Award justly deserved”.

“NOT ON THE LIST” – Then Access is “OK” – Unless you find otherwise then please comment.

RUTHS CHOICE – “Special Mention” to Ezme for making her card shop fully accessible – Sadly ill health has forced her to close her business very recently. Get well soon x

Road works at Council Offices Colwyn Bay.

There will be serious hold ups on Conwy Road in Colwyn Bay due to work on the new Council Offices.

These are planned to be completed by 18th October.

Please avoid and find another route if possible.

Report on Chester Park and Ride

I went into Chester today to go on a Park and Ride, to check on access for disabled passengers. I found it to be fantastic and i would recommend it to everyone that is disabled. I was blown away by how little it cost, you only have to pay for the all day ticket which on a bank holiday was £2 per person, which included being able to hop on and off. I didn’t do this but you can. 

It is a lot easier to get around Chester, without having to search for an accessible parking space. The buses are great and very accessible, but my only gripe with it would be the accessible stop button isn’t accessible enough. You can see it over my left shoulder in the picture below.
