Deputy Mayor of London Richard Barnes yesterday called on everyone who has difficulty getting around London to help make the capital more accessible ahead of the 2012 Games.

He has asked all Londoners and visitors to the capital with mobility issues to complete a survey, stating that, “The 2012 Games belong to everybody and I hope as many people as possible respond to our survey so that we can work with the tourism and hospitality industry to prepare our city for a fantastic, inclusive Olympics.”

The survey addresses a number of factors including – best and worst things about London; attractions that are difficult to visit due to accessibility issues; and practical changes that hotels could make.

The Deputy Mayor in partnership with the Nationwide Access Register, Direct Enquiries, has asked for Trailblazers help with this project.

So take a look – the survey can be accessed online at http://www.london.gov.uk/mayor/olympics/accessibility/ until May 31st, or by calling 01344 360 101.

Finally, President Obama shot to power with the slogan -‘yes we can!’- Trailblazers want to make our mark too and thanks to this current interest from the Deputy Mayor of London’s office, our soon to be published report on transport can help to make a real difference.

But we need a title and slogan. So when you are filling out your surveys and writing up your opinions on public transport, why not think up some catchy slogans we can use and send them in to trailblazers@muscular-dystrophy.org . Ideas so far include Let us on!‘ and ‘All change!’ .
