The 1984 Paralympic Games was a significant turning point in the history of the Games.  With just 4 months to go, the host city for the Wheelchair Games pulled out leaving the competition in danger of being cancelled. The Aylesbury community however stepped in to support the invitation to hold the wheelchair Games at Stoke Mandeville Stadium and the many stories of residents’ generously offering their spare rooms and camping spaces for athletes and officials at very short notice are stories that this community will investigate further and ensure are never forgotten.

Project information coming soon!
