Helping others to best of our ability
SHERILEE Macready, the Town of Cottesloe's community development and events officer, held a meeting on September 28 to review Cottesloe's progress over the past five years and to look at what we plan to do up to 2022.
Some of the ideas in the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan 2012-2017 are genuinely clever and look after people with disabilities and their everyday needs.
Ideas like arranging libraries so that all people can use them easily are brilliant.
They cost almost nothing to implement and may even save money in the long run.
Likewise for helping all people enjoy the beach more, one of Cottesloe's great points.
It might even lead to the SLSC extending its mission to include ‘Improving Abilities’.
Sherrilee went on to point out that disability or, less ability, comes to all of us in the form of old age.
Investment in making Cott a kinder place will help us all in the long run, no doubt about it.
Better access to all our facilities, street crossings and mentoring individuals with disabilities, as a community initiative, is one of my priorities, so I'll be supporting Sherilee and the committee in the years to come.
