Penny’s Blog: On the Right Track – Sing it or Say it

On the Right Track – Sing It or Say it

So got out my laptop this morning to write my blog and 40 minutes later here I am starting it.

My laptop has been busy doing repairs, whilst I sit waiting patiently (well maybe not that patiently) wondering when and if it is going to get going this morning. I have some great news about disability pride to share!

Anyway now it is and just in case it changes its mind I had better got on with it…

Sing Your Heart Out at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival

I heard this week that one of our Member groups, Sing Your Heart Out is taking part in the Norfolk and Norwich Festival and are offering some ‘not to be missed’ workshops in the Adnams Spiegeltent on May 23rd.

Sing Your Heart Out is so much fun and whether you can sing or not, it’s a really enjoyable workshop that lifts your spirits and makes you feel in a positive mood. So here is all the information so that you can come along and join in the fun….

You can find out plenty more about Norfolk & Norwich Festival on their website. There are plenty of exciting activities to get involved with: https://nnfestival.org.uk/

Disability Pride and Independent Living Event

It was the next meeting of the planning group, for this event this week, and its really beginning to come together.

There are lots of activities planned for the 16th September at the Forum, including interactive stands, a Parade, talks, workshops, music and arts, plus lots more.

In the week before the event, and the week after, there are also events going on, including a cycle challenge. I can’t wait to give you all the information as it becomes available.

But keep it in your diary ready.

Coming up

Coming up soon is the next Rail Access Group meeting, discussing the issues disabled people face when using the railways; whether that is at the station, online, on the train or with people’s attitudes.

Links have been made with Greater Anglia to have a continual dialogue on issues and the potential solutions.

If you would like to get involved in the Rail Access Group then do let me know and I will pass your details on to the group. My email is penny.parker@equallives.org.uk

Train at a platform

Oh, and just one important thing before I go, for all of you who have missed my cake updates….

Trudy and I had a lovely coffee and cake before the Disability Pride meeting. Carrot cake for me and I think Victoria Sponge for Trudy (as it was the cake with the biggest slices!!!) Ha Ha as Trudy has to put this on the website for me you may not see that bit – was it Victoria Sponge Trudy?

Anyway it was a nice way to spend lunch.
