Support for People with Learning Disabilities

On Friday, I opened a new sensory room, at Mencap Elmbridge, for people with learning disabilities. The money for the facility was raised through a mix of fund-raising, including a generous contribution from Glaxo Smith Kline. Jean Rigden and Veronica Collins are part of a fantastic team, doing inspirational work. It was great to see such a wide range of people with various disabilities making good use of the center and enjoying its facilities. The new room will help with rehabilitation and sensory stimulation for those with longer term conditions.

Just stopped by to congratulate you on your comments about Feminism and its Bigotry. Well done, it is high time this vile issue is exposed and addressed.

I am in Dorset and our local Tory council has 3320-Male and 12617-Women, they still wax lyrical about equality and complain, it will be interesting to see how "equal" the lay-offs wiull be in the cut back given those numbers. As for the off sick numbers, well....

At least your blog allows comments which is more than Mr Drax does who constantly runs from them.
