Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
I've just returned from the National Folk Festival where I saw lots of mobility scooters & wheelchairs which enable older/less mobile folkies to participate.

One of my younger friends (40ish) has Cerebral palsy & has used elbow crutches all her life. Recently she developed a spur from the crutches & needs to occasionally use a motorised wheelchair. So she was zipping around the large festival site, getting to everything she wanted to attend & was not tired! She normally takes days to recover from a festival or other heavy activity.

best wishes to all, onward & upward.

ps. a great time was had at the Festival.
