Accessible Adra tries for national award

ADRA Town Hall has decided to take part in the 2011 Reina Sofia Universal Accessibility Awards. The town was one of the first, not only in Almeria but also in the whole of Andalucia, to have a council dedicated to making life easier for the disabled.

Since then, the council has worked to make the town accessible to everyone, starting with public buildings, all of which have disabled access, and doing away with more than half of the town’s architectural barriers.

This also applies to local beaches which have a rest area with shade and special furniture, as well as dressing rooms, toilets and showers, all totally adapted for the disabled. There are also boardwalks to the shore, amphibian chairs for disabled bathers, and disabled parking at several beaches.

The Reina Sofia Awards are organized by the Ministry of Health, Social Policies and Equality and aims to recompense towns which have carried out at least five years continued effort to become accessible to all, not only architecturally, but also regarding, leisure, culture, education, sport, transport, tourism and new technologies. The prize would be €15,000.
