    Hi and welcome to the community 

    I am also interested a wheelchair 

    I find I get reduced prices at places like theme parks and cinema and some allow carers to go in free 

    You can get a  CEA card which allows carers into cinema free 

    You usually need to show proof of disability like pip letter or blue badge 

    I Don understand how dresses and shoes are more expensive for disabled? Maybe you can explain a bit more 

    Apart from that welcome on board and feel free to join in or ask any questions

    Hello @aminamangera

    Welcome to the community, good to see you join us. 

    I think it's completely fine to ask somebody you are meeting whether they have had a Coronavirus test or not, that's quite a common thing these days and I can't see people having issue with that. Have you been in that situation lately?
