To celebrate people of all abilities, a large stripe of matting will be laid at Town Beach on December 2. 

The beach matting, known as Mobi-Mat, will allow people with wheelchairs to access the water’s edge for the day without frustrating logistical issues.

A Davinci chair and Mobi-Chair Floating Wheelchair will also be made available for the public to try.
