Welcome to Accessibility Nottingham

Thank you all for coming to our event.

It’s great to see you all getting involved in a meet-up that’s for everyone.  If I start sounding like a preacher please tell me, I don’t want to put anyone off coming.  But I will say, that we all gather together because we want to make a difference to the world and I truly believe that together we can.
