Accessibility statements

Event accessibility

The Shire of Harpelstane is an open organisation, and has no restrictions on attendance at events or membership. However, as the sites we use are not owned by us, we cannot guarantee that they will be fully accessible. For example, a medieval castle may well have areas that are not fully accessible to everybody.
