CAMPAIGN: Good luck – you’ll need it

Callum Brazzo deserves praise for his campaign for better disability access but I fear he may be wasting his time.

Two decades ago my late husband, himself disabled, completed a survey of businesses in Spalding and Holbeach and found most of them lacked disability access. Little has changed since then.

Resistance to change seems to be a major factor in local decline. For instance, tulips haven’t been a main crop for years but are still regarded as symbolic. A far more significant emblem is the daffodil – especially as acres are grown for the drug in its bulbs, Galamanthine, used in dementia treatment.

Lincolnshire could declare itself a dementia-friendly county on this basis but should improve disabiity access first.
