Lynne Featherstone MP welcomes greater access for disabled residents

Lynne Featherstone MP with COOK shop owner Jase Denny in the new COOK shop on Muswell Hill Broadway Lynne Featherstone, Liberal Democrat MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, has welcomed the decision of the new COOK shop in Muswell Hill to replace its difficult front step and provide disabled access.

The decision comes after Lynne Featherstone MP and the Haringey Liberal Democrats made representations to the new owners on behalf of a local resident, Ms Tracey Proudlock.

The new COOK shop opened today on Muswell Hill Broadway.  Alterations to the front step are due to be completed next week.

Local resident Tracey Proudlock said:

“I have lived in Muswell Hill for 20 years and there has never been access to this shop so I’m thrilled that COOK has arrived and is now committed to taking away the step.

“Left as it was, many disabled people would not have had a chance of getting in – which would be simply unacceptable.

“It just goes to show what happens when you unleash a Liberal Democrat – they will fight your corner and will not give up!”

Commenting, Lynne Featherstone said,

“I am always willing to represent my constituents’ concerns – and was more than happy to contact the new owners after Tracey brought this issue to my attention.

“COOK has shown an excellent example by removing this step. Access for disabled people is vitally important – so I’m very glad to hear that the changes will be made.”
