LETTER: Event missed mark on handicap accessibility

I had to walk a kilometre from the nearest parking place to the tent where I was volunteering.

 

The Creatively United for the Planet event did not provide any accessibility for the handicapped.

The English Inn admits to having no outside accommodations for people with limited mobility, and the organizers of the event did not create any handicapped parking or provision for drop-off within the grounds.

I had to walk a kilometre from the nearest parking place to the tent where I was volunteering.

Whatever their good intentions about the planet, the organizers ignored the practical needs of a significant part of the population.
