Recently I spent a holiday in Nelson visiting family and while there we attended the Pride Parade.
In order to get a closer view I moved sideways quickly and tripped over a object on the sidewalk and fell.
I would like to thank the people of Nelson who were so quick to help me. Special thanks to Anthony, who was working at Mallards and took me to their washroom so I could clean up, and to Marilyn, a nurse who stayed with me until the bleeding stopped.
One of the quick thinking young mothers who was at the parade placed her carriage over the offending obstacle and someone reported it to the town. I’m happy to say the town reacted very quickly and covered it with a pylon.
Thank you to Mayor Deb for letters of apology to my son and to me.
Nelson is a wonderful town with great people and exciting energy. I look forward to my next visit.
