Paul, fantastic idea about disposing of the lifts in favour of the
slides. But I'm not clear how we would go *up* without the lifts? Some
of us like to use the stairs anyway because it's ENGERGISING but plenty
of people would probably still prefer to use the lifts, not least people
such as yourself who, if I may possibly say so, are differently able
bodied and would find the stairs unsuitable as a means of escalation. Is
there perhaps another solution?
While I'm on the subject could you in your EOAHASD role investigate
possible ways of controlling traffic on the slide system? We've already
had a couple of accidents with people not clearing the bottom quick
enough and trying to join the slide at floors part way down while that
particular slide system was already being utilised downwardly. Only the
other day I accidentally went down on Jen and we're both still bruised!
