Remembering Dr William Roberts: Mobility Scooter at Richmond.

Access the Dales is absolutely delighted to announce a generous donation of a mobility scooter in memory of Dr William Roberts, a beloved outdoorsman with a passion for exploring the countryside. Bill is fondly remembered as a teacher, mountaineer, author and poet. This donation is sure to bring great joy to many individuals who wish to get out and explore the countryside of Yorkshire

The mobility scooter is now available to borrow from the Richmond Swimming Pool, offering a convenient way for people with limited mobility to take in the sights and sounds of the Dales. We hope that this kind and meaningful donation will allow more people to appreciate the beauty of the outdoors, just as Bill did. We hope that this kind gesture will help to create new memories and experiences for those who wish to explore the Dales.
