Rt Hon Lord Lilley

    Peter Lilley joined members of Leisure Direct for a Kurling session last Friday. Leisure Direct is a charity that provides a large number of activities and events for adults with Learning Disabilities, ranging from pub meals to theatre trips, sport sessions and trips to the seaside.

    “I congratulate Leisure Direct on the imaginative range of activities they put on for their members. They provide fantastic opportunities for people who might otherwise be isolated to get out and socialise, and their members-led approach means there is always something for everyone. This charity is a great resource for North Herts and I admire the community spirit that they have created.

    “Getting involved in activities and social events can make all the difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities and their families – I applaud the work of all those at Leisure Direct who make this programme possible. I am also grateful for my initiation to the world of Kurling that the members gave me – a great sport, but in my case a bit more practice is required!”
