Heritage Open Days 2012

Having been the Inclusion member on the Heritage Open Days Steering Group for the past two years, in 2012 Theresa Hodge became Disability Access Advisor for the Hastings and St Leonards Heritage Open Days programme.

Theresa advised the Steering Group on how to make the 2012 programme booklet accessible to disabled people, which included making sure that appropriate access information was provided about the different events so that disabled people could make informed decisions about which events to attend.  She also worked with event organisers to implement low-cost solutions to make their events accessible.  This included:

  • Producing information to accompany a tour of St Leonards Parish Church in large print
  • Organising a sign language interpreted tour of St Leonards Parish Church
  • Producing audio labels (using a Penfriend labeller )to accompany photographs shown in an exhibition of the Burton St Leonards Society
  •  Organising a sign language interpreted walk around Hastings Old Town
