Disabled Access
« on: August 17, 2013, 11:47:56 AM »
... or sadly lack thereof meant I was unable to attend today :(

I am quite new to the vaping community (and to this forum!), having only been vaping and (not smoking :P ) for 4 months!

I made the silly mistake of not checking the facilities (I'm an ass for assuming) and when making a last minute phone call this morning, I was told there was only stair access to the vendor tent and no lift to the second floor of the Moat House -  for the congregating that takes place in the afternoon.

I left a message on the festival Facebook group, what do you think are the chances they'll change venues or have disabled access for next year?

I'm so gutted, I was looking forward to spending stupid money on the raffle and awesome hard to get bits and bobs.

Anyway, excuse the rant for a first post and I truly hope you have a great day if you're at the festival :D

I read that there are a couple of steps into the tent and the hotel can lend a ramp. Perhaps this didn't happen in the end. I'm pretty sure some wheel chair users from another forum were planning to go down.

Oh and welcome to ecf :)

When I spoke to the Moat House this morning, they didn't mention any ramps, I even asked if there was sloping ground I could roll down LOL! But alas, nope. It would be too late for me to journey down now anyway, we're three hours away and we've cancelled the kennels for our boys. Fingers crossed they do find a ramp though, should anyone else need it.

I'm now looking to live vicariously through other's ruthless spending and photos :P

ETA: Thanks for the welcome love!

A ramp was provided part way through the day into the Big tent.
