A Floating Wheelchair
Port Philip Council launched floating beach wheelchairs and wheelchair-friendly beach matting at St Kilda Lifesaving Club on Saturday and Ms Lawrie-Jones was the first one in the water after the launch (literally via The Age).
"I'd come down to watch the waves, but I couldn't go in. It made me really sad. I was such a water baby when I was a kid. Dad and I used to go to the beach all the time.
It feels amazing. It brought back so many memories of being a kid. I'll be here all the time now, this is really going to change lives".
