"The Deep was delighted to have its accessibility recognised by such a prestigious and knowledgeable organisation; it was particularly honoured to receive the inaugural Arnold Fewell Most Inclusive Building Award as the judges recognised The Deep’s long-time passion for accessibility and inclusivity for all. The Blue Badge Access Awards brought together so many enthusiastic and pro-active organisations striving towards accessibility within our industry, it was inspirational to be in such company."
