Easier Access Event postponed

Article dated Monday Sep 11, 2017 at 02:43 PM

An event planned this week in City Park has been postponed due to severe weather warnings.

The 10th anniversary Easier Access event, organised by Bradford Council’s Disability Partnerships and supported by Sovereign Health Care, was due to be held on Wednesday 13 September.

But severe weather warnings of high winds have forced organisers to postpone it. They are hoping to reschedule the event to Tuesday, 3 October.

The annual event raises awareness of disability issues. It is aimed at carers, voluntary and statutory organisations and their employees, local businesses and the general public.

This year’s event will feature inclusive sports and activities, live bands, short films on the Big Screen, a climbing wall and stalls around City Park with information and advice. Over 70 different local organisations are contributing to this well loved, inclusive and valued event.

Coun Dale Smith, Co-Chair of the Strategic Disability Partnership, said: “This is not a decision we have taken likely, but it is something we have had to do on safety grounds. We look forward to holding this popular event at a later date.”
