LETTER SENT TO THE WREXHAM LAGER CLUB following a recent visit:
Dear Mr Chairman
Let me begin by saying how much I enjoy attending the Wrexham Lager Club. It has a good atmosphere and it is in a good location. However, I admit that I rarely choose to drink here due to a lack of wheelchair access.
Wheelchairs are able to gain access from the rear of the building, but as I found out during a recent trip to see Leanne Wood at this venue, this is still a struggle due to an unfriendly door ledge and a lack of space to manoeuvre. I am not sure if there is a disabled toilet in the club either.
I have recently had to miss two events held at the Club due to this lack of accessibility. I understand that the premises were not built with people with disabilities in mind, but it is very frustrating not to be able to fully participate in the local community. The Wrexham Lager Club is the hub of the local community and should therefore be able to accommodate everyone.
I haven’t done any research but I believe there must be grants and help available to transform such an important public building with full accessible features. I’d also be happy to help with any fundraising or publicity needed to make this happen.
Many thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
