idea for a new thread or heading
#1
I recently tried to help someone who was travelling to Fuerteventura (Corralejo).
In their party was someone who used a wheelchair.  They had managed to find a wheelchair friendly hotel,  but they wanted to try and find bars and restaurants that were accessible.
I contacted the Corralejo tourist board and they said they only had a list of hotels and not bars and restaurants (which I think is poor)  I think it might be a idea for this forum to help with maybe its own topic or some sort of permanent thread that people could access.  The two key questions would be can you access the bar our restaurant and are the toilets accessible and disable friendly.  I also believe its something other people in the same situation would search the internet for and could increase traffic on the site( the last sentence was for you Sam ha!).  
Sam its obviously call as this is your baby (happy birthday) but just a thought.  The only useful thing I could find was and article in the Voice magazine below.

I think that’s a great idea Si, it could be set up as a sticky and people could contribute as they tried various bars and restaurants, the relevant owners may pick up on this and make the efforts to improve their facilities for the less mobile customers or potential customers

Those were my thoughts Can.  If owners found out about it why wouldn't want to attract more business.
I see it as a rolling thread that people would keep adding to and or updating as bars and restaurants change.

Great idea Si! Just create a new thread names "Wheelchair friendly bars and restaurants" in the general forum and we all try to chip in with info. No need to run by me or anyone else. Any idea that's (Fuerteventura related and) helpful to the community is appreciated here.

Sam should we not have it as a separate section where we can have subsections per Towns, say Caleta, PDR, Correlejo, El Cotilo, Costa Calima, Morro Jable ....

Thanks Can. I would go the section route once the thread will get difficult to read and split it into more threads. Don't think it's necessary to create the section if we'll have just a few posts in it.

My thought was it would be something more permanent with maybe its own
heading.  So its easy to find and doesn't drop away.  I also think it maybe a
better idea to include help with anything not just access to bars and restaurants

That's not big deal, if there will be enough informations to fill a few threads it can be in its own category. In the main Bars & Restaurants is currently about 20 restaurants. We can make it "sticky" to keep it at the top if it'll be slipping down or to the second page.

Maybe a thread about water safety might be no harm.
