Roundabout for young wheelchair users to enjoy


Fun-loving Angel Allen can sit in comfort as she enjoys a trip on the merry-go-round in her local playground.

Sea Palling now has its own ‘kidabout’ roundabout, specially designed to allow wheelchair users such as Angel, 10, to enjoy a ride.

The kidabout’s ground-floor base and wide entry means Angel, of St Margaret’s Place, can park her wheelchair easily on board, and enjoy a whirl alongside little brother Ben, four.

The kidabout was bought through the village’s Sea Palling with Waxham Community Trust, which topped up a £5,000 grant from North Norfolk District Council’s (NNDC) Big Society Fund. North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb and Tom FitzPatrick, leader of NNDC, were guests at yesterday’s official opening.
