Rotations Shop – Whitchurch



Sadly due to Covid-19 we were not able to make use of the Rotations Shop in Whitchurch this year. We will however be there in 2021.

Watch here for more details

Christmas Wrapping in ‘The Malls’

2019 proved to be a success again with our helpers being busy throughout the period.

Our Festive Log Cabin was located in the Square, outside Wilko. The Crew at Shopmo are very grateful to the local company’s who allowed their Staff time off to support the wrapping during normal working hours.

As in the past the suggested minimum of £1.00 per parcel donation, however many donated considerably more, with all profits going towards keeping the cost of our hire scooters to an affordable minimum.

Our operating dates were:

14th to the 24th December 10.00 – 18.00hrs each day. We were unable to cover Sundays, and will be looking for wrapping volunteers to support us on Sundays in 2020

We thank The Malls Management Team once again for allowing Shopmobility to provide this service, and allowing us to enjoy the Festive Spirit of the occasion

Travel Scooters – suitable for putting in the boot of the Car, on a Coach, or on the Train and going out for the day are very popular. During the Summer Season they do get booked up early so to avoid disappointment please enquire as soon as you know any dates.  These small robust scooters are also suitable for taking on Cruises, and some flights within Europe, so maybe a wonderful holiday somewhere can be made easier with out Travel Scooters – just ask for more details.

Any Scooter taken away from the Centre overnight will require a £100.00 refundable deposit.

Alresford Agricultural Show 2020

Sadly this Show has suffered from the current Covid-19 situation, and has rightly been cancelled for 2020.

I know we all look forward to this dreadful time passing, and that the 2021 Show will be back, better than ever. Until then!

The Shopmo ‘On Tour’ Team

Transport Festival War Memorial Park Basingstoke. This Event has now been cancelled for 2020. The 2021 date is set for Sunday 9th May

 

Well we were there, and the first Show organised by the Basingstoke Rotary Club

 As ever we were ‘all sold out’ with our pre-booked Scooters, so if you are going in 2021 do please book in advance.  As we are limited to the number of Scooters we can transport, once their gone, their gone. So don’t be disappointed, please book early.

Thank you for supporting our fund raising adventures.

Shopmobility Basingstoke Trundles 2019

2019 has been a successful year for Trundles

We had four outings.

Firstly we had our Trip to Milestones Museum for afternoon Tea and Cake 8 Scooters took part in this one.

Second Trip was a mystery tour – a new route through some of the back lanes out toward Old Basing, and through Riverdene towards Crabtree before coming back through the Memorial Park with 7 riders taking part

Third Trip was to Oliver’s Fish & Chip Shop in Old Basing, where we all enjoyed a wonderful Lunch. 9 Scooters took the route through the ‘Park, Black Dam Lakes and Crabtree Plantation Reserve to arrive in time for a much needed Lunch

Our final trip of the year was to the Gardens and Lakes before retuning to Shopmo for Tea and Cakes, 8 Scooters enjoyed the afternoon out.

The weather at all four events was kind to use, having taken wet weather gear I’m pleased to say it was not necessary.

A good year all round for our Trundles – can we beat it in 2020?

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. Please watch this space for 2019

Shopmobility Basingstoke Trundle

Please contact us on 01256 476 066 to book your place. All of the excursions are of course subject to the weather conditions on the day.
