Access success

Stop Gap has made Cranbrook a little more accessible with the installation of seven new ramps at local businesses this week.

Keith Haycroft

Lori Montcalm launched the project a few weeks ago, teaming up with Home Depot to create the brightly coloured, portable ramps. They were installed for free at Big Picture Audio Video, Juniper Lanes, Pages Book Emporium, Xerox Columbia Copiers, Heidi’s Restaurant and Kathy’s Kitchen. Accessibility to all six businesses is just a phone call away now that the new ramps have been delivered. Montcalm said anyone needing them should phone ahead to the business so an employee can set them out and assist. Pictured is Keith Haycroft, owner of Big Picture with Team Depot captain John Sutherland with the new ramp as Montcalm gives it a try. For more information on Stop Gap and how to get one for your business contact Montcalm at (250) 489-3739 or email her at lmontcalm@shaw.caStop Gap has made Cranbrook a little more accessible with the installation of seven new ramps at local businesses this week.
