Finally!

Regular readers of this blog will have heard one name over and over again - John Kenwright the Parks Victoria Community Inclusion Coordinator. More than anyone (apart from Ros and me launching the ship) he has kept the TrailRider ship afloat and surging onwards. Just put his name in the Search This Blog box on the right (on a computer) and see how many hits you get.

As I'm at pains to point out, in most of the TrailRider speeches I've given, he does this on one of the five days in his working week. The other four he is doing something else as amazing for the disabled.

It is therefore entirely appropriate that he is one of six finalists in the Emerging Leader category of the 2017 Victorian Disability Awards

  1. John won't be blowing his own trumpet about this. We all have to do it for him - loud and long. He is the most quiet of heroes - but a giant of a hero for disability access that that there could possibly be. And one of nicest people on the planet as well.

    1. He is modesty personified so that leaves a lot of space for all our trumpeting!
