Jenny Teagle, of Guildford Access Group, said: “We want to get the public to help us draw up a list of suggestions as to how the council could improve their services and facilities for people with physical impairment. The Access Group has been successful in lobbying the council for change and we would now like to involve more people from the local community.”

Stephen Mansbridge, Leader of the council, added: “We welcome input and feedback from local people. Their suggestions will form part of our action plan on equalities.”
