This week’s Humans of Weston instalment comes from 69-year-old Christine Williams.

Christine, who is disabled, has lived in Weston all her life and said she enjoys shopping and spending time with her pets.

She said: “I like to go shopping and going for coffee and cake.

“I love my dogs and enjoy taking them out.”

Christine also said she experienced problems in accessing her house due to parking issues, but said she felt access for disabled people in the town centre was generally good.

She said: “The wheelchair access in Weston isn’t bad – around the shops and town is just fine.

“I can’t get in and out of my house easily and we are having trouble with parking outside my home when the care assistants come around.

“We are talking to the council about the issue.

“In Weston I have never got any problems, everyone is so kind and helpful.

“The people of Weston are good to me.”
