Progress – A local’s campaign for differently abled accessibility in Plett

Rita Hardaker has been working behind the scenes for a number of years in Plett, campaigning for public spaces and tourism establishments to upgrade in order to accommodate the differently-abled. 

Bitou Municipality has responded very well to the challenge, and the town planning department has already made inroads into extending wheelchair access on some of Plett’s streets.  Many of Plett’s tourism establishments are geared for the differently-abled, but the mammoth project to create awareness and effect all the necessary changes is ongoing.

Plett Tourism fully supports this drive.  Plett citizens are once again are at the forefront of making a difference to the Plett environment. For additional information on the project and how you can participate, please contact Rita on ritav@global.co.za.

It was with great pride that Plettenberg Bay Bowling Club in the Eden District held a ‘Day 4 Disability’ on Saturday, November 30th 2019.

The purpose was to raise awareness of lawn bowls as a social sport for all and to showcase the participation of differently-abled bowlers skillfully engaging in a leisure activity alongside the able-bodied on equal terms. 48 bowlers from near and far took part including two Springbok players and 8 people with physical challenges.
