On line tickets for Disabled is now a reality. PADSA has been lobbying the club for some months to get this system in place. Nikki Francis has been working hard on our behalf so a big thank you to her. Abig thanks to all the people who contacted the club pushing for this. We have been making huge strides in away games the latest being Swindon this Saturday and Exeter at the end of October and the new grandstand due to open soon things are looking good for our match day experience.
Still have 2 wheelchair spaces plus seats for carers available on the bus for Saturday’s match against Northampton.
We are having our 10th anniversary party on Sunday March 10th at 2pm. This will be in the Green Taverners Suite at the top of the Car Park.
The Car Park will be closed due to building work, so people need to use the Park and Ride car park.

Had a visit to the shop at Argyle this morning looking at access. The shop is due to open on Tuesday morning. Firstly I would say that I tried to look at issues from multiple Disabiities however I am a wheelchair user and am not as familiar with other disabilities, that said my observations are as follows. The door entrance is wide and level however this has not been automated as yet but we are looking at this with the club and hopefully this will be resolved. The isles are wide and the rails are at a good height. I was impressed with the good lighting and with the white walls the whole room was bright. There is a wheelchair counter and the changing room was big enough to turn my wheelchair in. There are no doors to the changing room but a heavy curtain. There is no furniture in the changing room at present so we need to look again when this is fitted. There is going to be a full length mirror and I have asked for a coat hanger to be at a lower level. Obviously staff training is important when help is needed i.e. mental health issues learning disabilities etc. This should be a carry over from the old shop so hopefully this will happen. I am open to any suggestions or thoughts as the club are keen to have feed back so when you visit the shop if you have any ideas feed them back thank you.
