We were trapped in our homes during Port Sunlight 10k
2:24pm Tuesday 20th May 2014 in Letters
ON Sunday, May 11, the Port Sunlight 10K was run and the bikes raced.
Well done, everyone.
However, did you know that older and disabled people couldn’t get out of their homes?
I was told on the day that 10am was too late to pick my mum up – that was the first I knew that she should have been collected by 9.30am.
We wanted to go to church at 10.15am, but I could not drive around Wirral until that time with the heater on in the car to keep her warm.
I know it is great to showpiece for Wirral, but don't forget our older and disabled residents are not just mildly inconvenienced – it is a major disturbance when they cannot get out of their homes with ease.
Please give them a thought – do not dismiss them as I was told to do with my mum.
