Life's a Beach for everyone

We've 'bagged' £10,000

We are delighted to announce that our 'Life's a Beach' project has been awarded £10,000 by the Tesco Bags of Help link will open in new window initiative.

Funded from the 5p bag charge, the money is being used to purchase equipment allowing disabled and wheelchair-bound beach users access to our award-winning beaches and the sea.   

Almost 20% of the working population in the UK are disabled and as our beaches are one of Poole's most attractive and popular assets, it is important to us that all our residents are able to enjoy and access them.

Mobi-Mat link will open in new window is a portable rollout pathway that will run from the promenade at Sandbanks Beach directly into the sea, while three Mobi-Chairs will provide transportation across the sand, the mat and into the water at three of Poole's beaches.  

The new equipment will be available from July (exact date TBC) and you can book via the beach office. It is free to hire but a refundable deposit will be required.
