In September Richard Cochrane gave BBC Guernsey reporter Fay Tabel a powerful, yet balanced insight into the difficulties disabled islanders face when getting around Town and into shops.

Even though it was radio, you could tell just by Richard’s voice how much effort he was having to put in to getting his wheelchair over various barriers – mostly by hanging on to railings and lampposts!  

Unfortunately you can only “Listen Again” to BBC Guernsey for seven days after the original broadcast, so Richard’s interview isn’t available any more. But if you join the GDA, you’ll be alerted by email as soon as interesting stuff like this happens so you can tune in straight away.

Just go to the Contact Us page on this website and send a mail saying you would like to join the GDA. Or call Orla on 07781 467316.
