GUIDES that show all accessible buildings for disabled people have been launched.

Chichester Access Group has launched two guides, which collate details of accessible public buildings and businesses.

One covers the heart of the cathedral city and the other covers north of Chichester, including large areas of the South Downs National Park.

Earlier this year, CAG was honoured to welcome the Hon Charles Pearson as its patron. The group has also become a registered charity.

It is hoped that this will enable it to expand the work that it does to encourage the Chichester district to become a more accessible and welcoming place.

Glynis Spencer, the group’s new chairwoman, said: ‘I am extremely proud of all the effort the members of the group have put in.

‘It is no easy task to assess an area as large as the Chichester district.

‘All their hard work is rewarded by the encouragement and good wishes of the residents and businesses in the areas that our guides cover and we look forward to completing the series. We would not have been able to have achieved what we have without received from Chichester District Council and our other sponsors.’

The free guides will be in libraries and council offices.
