An update on former client Hannah.
Life here is great. I've not been too well since I moved here, spending 14 weeks in hospital in three admissions. I didn't receive any physiotherapy whilst an inpatient and now can't walk again - boo! I am managing around home on my [very bruised and swollen!] knees and I have now reached the top of the physio waiting list, so am working on a gutter frame, for my permitted 5 sessions. The CCG won't pay for any physio as part of my care package, nor even fund access to a pool for me to practice alone. Hey ho.
But...l live near the sea!! This last weekend was a brilliant free beach festival, http://www.paddleroundthepier..... Lots of music, stalls, talks, displays and races. But for me, the best bit? An Access beach! Because the beach here is pebbles rather than sand, I can't normally access the sea at all, let alone actually get into it. However, they had special beach wheelchairs, and lots of volunteers, so I had three [good looking!] men carrying me in on a surfboard and then keeping me afloat etc! Amazing! You should come down next year and compete in something!
