‘Giving Ryde’s Past to the Future’

Historic Ryde Society Quiz Night Thursday 26 October 2023 at Yelf's Hotel, at 7p.m. for 7.30pm.

Proof, if proof were needed, that wheelchair access is possible, was found today, when the first wheelchair visitor to Ryde District Heritage Centre came to view the Donald McGill Saucy Seaside Postcard collection.

Eileen Hobbs, with her friends Ann George and Teresa Feane, had come all the way from Luton to visit the Centre. Thanks to a recent Community Development Fund grant, Eileen was able to come down the stairs in the stairlift, as her wheelchair was taken out of the back door of the arcade at street level, and brought in through the back door of the Centre.

A fine achievement! Return to homepage.
