The UK city of Chester is this year’s winner of the Access City Awards.  An honour recognising the work and achievements of European cities in improving access and opportunities for people with disabilities.

Presenting the award Marianne Thyssen, Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility said:

“Chester’s efforts to make its historical and cultural heritage fit for persons with disabilities deserve the highest praise.
