Why can’t I park inside the new hall?

Winnie Ware of Ladysmith wonders why she can't park her scooter inside the new hall in Ladysmith.


Greetings to the many caring souls in Ladysmith.

It has taken some time to get the courage to relate this tale.

I am 90. I have been a member of seniors organizations since the late 1970s and did volunteering, mainly as the sick and visiting.

I get help now through Veterans Affairs so am seen scooting about Ladysmith, enjoying this independence.

However, for the last 10 months, I have frequented the City Hall to beg for help. I am forbidden to park inside the new hall. So, as the rainy season approaches and no shelter is provided, will I have to carry a rock once more to hold the outside toilet door open so I can seek shelter there — again?

I am a 65-year resident of the local area.
