Beach wheelchairs burned

It was really saddening to read about the destruction of the beach wheelchair in Cornwall a couple of weeks ago.

With having such a wet August everyone has been able to enjoy a glorious September so far with temperatures well above average and some relatively long sunny days.

Beaches in Devon and Cornwall have remained fairly busy with folk enjoying the sun and the sea. So to learn that special beach wheelchairs and other items were burned in Polzeath was terrible. What is wrong with some folk ?

It seems that vandals smashed their way in to the local councils storage shed and removed several items including surf boards and the wheelchairs, dragged them down the beach and set alight to them.

The wheelchairs are the type with the balloon tyres that help them cope with the sand and shingle found on beaches. The wheelchair frames are made using stainless steel to prevent corrosion. They cost approximately £3000 each making it very costly to replace them.

Lets hope the police catch those responsible and the wheelchairs are replaced !
