Cllr Dale Heenan, Swindon Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Sustainability and Transport, said: “Events such as the Mobility Fayre are a great way to showcase the services that are available to disabled people and their families. We had some really positive feedback from last year’s event and I’m sure with so many exhibitors this year will be no different.
“With on of our local MPs as the Minister for Disabled People, it will be great to see him attending to hear for himself the excellent work that takes place, but also the challenges local disabled residents faces on mobility issues. As the Minister, he is perfectly placed to make practical change happen.”
