Shopmobility Basingstoke Trundles 2017

At Shopmobility Basingstoke our motto is ‘more than just shopping’. So many people think all our customers do in town is shop. They forget there are an abundance of other reasons for coming into town e.g. bank, dentist, doctor, optical, legal services, meeting a friend, gym, cinema.

Shopmobility Basingstoke Trundle

Plus, customers of Shopmobility Basingstoke get the opportunity to go on a ‘Trundle’. This is an organised trip from the office, lead by staff/volunteers which takes the customer outside of the shopping area and off to places they wouldn’t normally get to and sometimes don’t even know exist.

The weather allowed us hold 3 of our 4 planned trundles this year and a good time was had by all. We will organise more ‘Trundles’ for 2018

These were the routes we took this year, unfortunately ‘rain stopped play’ for our surprise route, planned to take place in September.

Thursday 1st June

Milestones Museum for afternoon tea/coffee and cake, travelling the back lanes of old Basingstoke.

Thursday 6th July

Parks and Gardens in and around the town centre then back here to the office for tea and cake.

Tuesday 15th August

Fish and Chips at Olivers Old Basing, after a scenic ride past the Black Dam nature reserve and through the Crabtree Plantation.

New additions to the Shopmobility fleet

Regular users of 3-Wheeled Shopmobility scooters may have seen one new addition to the Shopmobility fleet.

3 wheeled scooters

We now have Penny a red version of the 3 in the picture, she was bought with the money collected in the coin boxes people have at home, hence the name Penny. We are now working towards another scooter, perhaps we can call it Tuppence!

We were also lucky, in 2016, to receive a kind donation from The Wote St Club, in Basingstoke, we used the money to buy, Lynne, a smart looking black & grey 4 wheeled scooter, named after a past member of the Club.

 

Our final addition at the moment is a new Travel Scooter, bringing our fleet of travel scooters fleet up to 5. It is called Go Go 5 and was purchased with money we received from the Mayor of Basingstoke’s Charity Chest.

Do come and try one out soon.
