Calvert Trust Exmoor has been labelled amazing by disabilities minister Justin Tomlinson during a visit this afternoon (Friday). Joined by North Devon MP Peter Heaton-Jones, the minister was guided around the centre near Blackmoor Gate by trust chief executive Tony Potter. They were accompanied by Dr Tom Bigge, chairman of trustees, Lady Acland, president of The Calvert Trust, and vice president John Gillett, who is also a local government advisor on disability issues. During the tour the minister met staff and guests, explored the fully accessible facilities, and learnt more about how the centre adapts and develops equipment to enable people with all types of disability to take part in a wide range of adventurous activities. Mr Tomlinson said: What a fantastic, amazing facility. People with disabilities often tell me that they want to access the same opportunities as everyone else; Calvert Trust Exmoor demonstrates that anything and everything is possible, there are no barriers. During the visit John Gillett gave a demonstration of wheelchair abseiling - the first time John had been involved in any rope based sport since the 36ft fall that put him in a wheelchair in October 1992. Peter Heaton-Jones added: This is my third visit to Calvert Trust Exmoor; I always leave here inspired, and I know the minister will be too. This is a facility we should be proud of at a national level; its fantastic that we have this centre in our area. Tony Potter said: We were delighted to welcome the minister here today and give him an overview of our activities and aims. He seemed very impressed with the centre and enjoyed meeting our staff and guests. All in all it was a very positive visit.
