Halifax's Mayflower CC to be made wheelchair accessible

The Mayflower CC in Halifax NS has been awarded a grant of $20,000 towards making the club accessible to wheelchair users.

“We have provincial, national and world titles and soon enough we hope to have a wheelchair curling title,” Paul McDonald, past President of the club, told the Metro News.

Wheelchair curling is huge now across Canada, and Mayflower wants to be able to offer it;  McDonald added in an interview with The Chronicle-Herald.

A ramp and accessible bathroom are the first improvements planned, with a lift from the main floor onto the ice shed level.
