Cllr Manning, attending alongside fellow Liberal Democrat councillors Simon Knightly, Rod Cantrill, Sarah Whitebread, Ian Nimmo-Smith and Mayor of Cambridge Cllr Shelia Stuart commented “This was a really good example of how the Liberal Democrat City council work to promote inclusiveness in sport and art across the city.  I felt particularly impressed taking part in the dance workshop in a wheelchair myself – it gave me a real sense of perspective on the challenges and opportunities for residents of our city with disabilities.”

Cllr Manning also said “I met several volunteer groups at the event, including “You Can” and hope to help them achieve their aim of encouraging facilities for disabled cycling provision in conjunction with the City and County Councills”.
