“Today I met with the Beach Accessibility Working Group who are looking at beach access for the disabled and to keep new members of the committee informed, the same group presented a petition on that matter to a meeting earlier this year and we agreed to undertaken action in relation to their request.
Progress so far is that there will be a beach accessibility showcase at the Brighton Centre the weekend of the 24th and 25th August that the council are funding and I very much hope you are able to attend.
