Many visitors to Hall Farm cottages have mobility challenges. Situated at the heart of the Broads National Park and close to Horning, Hall Farm has access to many paths, communities and to unspoilt beaches. However, normal wheelchairs are not able to access some of these areas due to their terrain. To offer all visitors access to all areas and to ensure an enjoyable experience for the less able as well as their carers, family and friends, an all-terrain wheelchair has been purchased. This will also be hired to other local accommodation providers, when available.

Total grant amount: £550
Grant applicant: Hall Farm cottages

This portable new generator will enable the attachment of tools and increase its ability to provide educational presentations and visits.
