Accessibility is no secret in Bletchley

Hotel, Sport & Leisure Tue, Mar 27, 2018 8:52 AM

It’s no secret that JD Wetherspoon’s latest venue, Captain Ridley’s Shooting Party, is open to all.

The new pub in Bletchley is named after the codebreakers from M16 who operated from the town during WWII, and even features a rare WWII cipher machine as part of its fixtures and fittings.

Fittings also include a Changing Places wheelchair-accessible toilet for people who need help with their intimate hygiene, continuing the chain’s commitment to welcoming everyone, regardless of age or ability.

Supplied and installed by Closomat, Britain’s leading provider in accessible toilet solutions, the Changing Places gives more space than a conventional wheelchair-accessible toilet, and additional equipment, including an adult sized height adjustable changing bench, height adjustable washbasin, ceiling track hoist and privacy screen. It means that anyone enjoying the pub but who need help to go to the toilet, and their carer(s), have appropriate facilities, and can go somewhere that otherwise they would be unable to enjoy.

Under Building Regulations and British Standards, a Changing Places toilet should be included in buildings to which numbers of the public have access.

Since their introduction a decade ago, over 1000 have been opened across the UK. JD Wetherspoon is the only major UK pub operator that includes Changing Places wherever possible in its locations.

Closomat is Britain’s leading provider of helpful toileting solutions, at home and away, including Changing Places.

Uniquely, the company can provide an in-house, ‘one- stop-shop’ complete package for ‘away from home’ assisted accessible toilet facilities, from design and commissioning, through to project management, supply and installation, and can also provide subsequent maintenance and repair. Thus it is becoming the ‘go to’ company for such faciltiies, being chosen by, among others, JD Wetherspoon, Alton Towers, IKEA, Tesco, Morrison, Alton Towers, Moto, Manchester International Airport, Wembley Stadium.
