Shopmobility Melton have wheelchairs and electric scooters for hire to those in the MBC area who may have problems with their mobility.
The last two years have seen a dramatic reduction in usage and we are keen to have more people use us as spring approaches and longer days and warmer weather are not too far away. Some may be reluctant to use a scooter (training will be provided), some may have just got out of the habit of using us and some may not know that we exist but I am anxious that as many people as possible get to know about us and to use us if that helps them get out and about.
Hires may be for a day, weekend or longer term and I am hoping to provide greater flexibility by obtaining a 'suitcase' sized folding scooter to support those that want to go on holiday but where space in a car, coach or aeroplane would be impossible for most wheelchair/scooter users.
