You have seen me mention Darren Hillock and his Get Around Guide several times. It just keeps getting better!

Here's the latest from Get Around Guide:

An exclusive Q&A on disabled travel in the UK
When I read and posted about The Mersey Neurological Trust exhibition on travel for people with disabilities, I was fascinated enough with the idea that I wanted to know more. How it went, will they do it again, what insights might they have on travel by the disabled? I was fortunate to connect with Danny Start, administration and marketing officer for The Mersey Neurological Trust. We had a little Q and A, which I share here:
