Henlow Bridge Lakes

On 22nd August I visited a fishery in Bedfordshire called Henlow Bridge Lakes for a days fishing.

Access to the venue was excellent with good facilities.  These include a well stocked tackle shop and convenience store, showers if needed and clean, modern disabled toilet.

There are several swims set aside for anglers with limited mobility and baliffs on hand if any help is needed.

Day tickets price is £8 per day which i personally think is good value for money.

Olympics 2012

Last week i had the good fortune of visiting the Olympic Park in London to watch the Men's basketball.  I watched two games - Lithuania V Nigeria and GB V Brazil.  Both were very good games, with Lituania and Brazil both winning.

The facilities in the park were excellent.  As you would expect with such a modern venue, everything was accessible, flat and very well sign-posted.  I had no issues at all using my powerchair kindly supplied by Kudosfirst.  The "games makers" were always on hand to help or point you in the right direction - all in all a brilliant day out.

South Central Muscle Group

Attended a very good meeting this morning over in Milton Keynes with members of the South Central Muscle Group, Mark Lancaster MP, Laura Watts and hosted by Nic Bungay. The agenda included various items including the presentation of the new advocacy pack, fund raising ideas from Laura and a good talk from the local MP - Mark Lancaster. It was again highlighted that there is a severe lack of physiotherapy facilities for MD sufferers. It was my first time meeting the group, who were all extremely friendly, and will definately be attending the next one.

Wrest Park, Silsoe, Bedfordshire.

Today I took the dogs over to Wrest Park in Silsoe.
I thought as the weather was still holding out it was time to dust off the Kudosfirst K6, grab the leads and take the dogs for a long walk.
The main house is a beautiful old building surrounded by plenty of green space - all flat enough for the scooter to handle.  The park istself is completely free to enter with ample parking space.
Well worth a visit.

Northants Saints V Munster

Headed over to Stadium MK on 21st January for a heineken cup game.
Having been to the stadium many times before i knew the facilities and access were excellent, and again i was not disappointed.
The game itself was exciting, although Munster stamped their dominance towards the end, winning by a clear margin.
