Sainsbuys have now contracted out their car parking to a company called Euro Car Parks, there are 8 disabled spaces at the big Sainsburys near us. Because I need to get my wheelchair along side the car to get in and out if there were no disabled spaces I would use one of the ""many"" mother and child spaces as they also have space along side them whilst I appreciate that juggling children and getting your shopping into the car is tough I had 4 under 6 and there were no mother and child spaces then. I always try the disabled spaces first and will usually drive around a couple of times. What is even more galling is that to park in a Mother and Child slot you only need to have a child under the age of 12 with you so they are being used by people who in the past assumed they for mothers and toddlers.
Please be aware of this I waiting for the store manager to call me back but I am not holding out much hope. Please check when you park and if can use an ordinary space and don't need extra room think of us poor souls who do need that space.
