A new disabled parking bay is being officially launched in March for people visiting the Eddie’s service for adults with learning disabilities.

The bay has been created following a campaign by a Cambridgeshire project called Speak Out, which is led by six people who either have a learning disability or autism.

The Speak Out leader for the Fens, Michelle Mansfield, has campaigned for a number of years for a disabled parking bay somewhere in the centre of March. She runs a regular drop in for people to bring issues to her that she can tackle as a project.

The drop-in takes places at the Eddie’s Artworks Day Service at number 88 on the High Street, opposite the Oliver Cromwell Hotel.

Michelle was aware there were problems with accessible parking for people using the service.

She teamed up with Eddie’s to campaign for the bay, that is set to benefit disabled people in general and also the day service specifically.

The bay will be officially launched on Tuesday January 19.
