Supported by Deafblind Scotland, PAMIS and Perth and Kinross Council, the investment includes a free to use state-of-the-art sensory room, specifically aimed at children and adults who have limited communication skills.
The programme also includes the installation of a ‘Changing Places’ toilet that can be used by patrons with complex physical disabilities. Alan Stewart, chairman of Thistle Pub Company, said: “These renovations will go a long way to fulfilling our ethos of serving the widest community possible.”
