» BURNHAM-ON-SEA DISABLED ACCESS SURVEY

Disabled Access Survey 2004 gives Burnham businesses the thumbs up!

Having carried out their wheelchair survey in Burnham-On-Sea High Street and other areas of the town, the Burnham Youth Town Council found the shops which were considered to have good access and especially helpful staff:

The Post Office, The Indoor Market, Nationwide Building Society, Material Needs, The Baptist church, The Railway Pub, St Margaret's Hospice, Bastins, David Bull's, Shoe Zone, Mix It, Roley's Fudge pantry, Somerfields, Flower Fair, Hurley's newsagents, Applegates, Sentiments, Sue Ryder, Bridgwater Communications, Regency Joe's, Video Magic, Fortes, The Toy Cupboard, Bayview Café, The Sunspot Amusements and Blackbrook vets.

Three premises were found to have gone out of their way to be helpful and had excellent facilities and the Youth Town Council would like to recommend these businesses to anyone with disabilities or who have children in push chairs to care for, they are Savers, Boots The Chemists and the Reeds Arms (JD Wetherspoon).

(NB: The Pier was not canvassed as Burnham's Mayor, Louise Parkin, has too close links to the business and was closely involved in the survey).
