Prominent Anti Shared Space Campaigner to visit Morpeth

I have been working together with my fellow Stobhill town councillor Johnny Wearmouth and with resident Rachael Hogg to oppose the controversial Shields Rd ‘Shared Space’ scheme which has now been postponed for further consultation, particularly with disability groups.

We have invited prominent disability access and anti ‘Shared Space’ campaigner Sarah Gayton to speak at a public meeting on Thursday 20th October at St Aidan’s Parish Hall, Shields Rd Morpeth at 5.30pm.

Sarah will be showing her film ‘Sea of Change – walking into trouble’, which she showed the House of Lords in 2013 and which explains the difficulties experienced by blind and disabled people trying to use shared space schemes around the country.

All welcome – please pass on the details to anyone who may be interested.
