Siobhan Fennell founded Accessible Belper four years ago, leading a team of volunteers in raising awareness of the needs of disabled people throughout family and community organisations.

Accessible Belper said: "The town has listened and taken action to ensure that everyone can enjoy its businesses and services equally.

"The switching on of the lights this year, will be a wonderful way of highlighting the essential nature of a message that is being spread by a welcoming, friendly town."
