Don't trap me at home!

Speaker: Gwynneth Pedler

Gwynneth works with the Oxford City Access Forum and Oxfordshire Unlimited to improve conditions for people with disabilities throughout the city. Deeply committed to increasing choice for disadvantaged people, she has even taken her message to the Trafalgar Square plinth.

An active discussion followed her presentation of the arguments in favour of light-controlled crossings as opposed to zebras, especially in view of the recent replacement outside County Hall.

Topics raised included:

The speaker was warmly thanked for coming to talk to us and raise awareness of the many problems facing people with disabilities. We look forward to continuing cooperation with groups fostering maximum independence for all in a crowded city environment.
