Stockton helps it's disabled residents

To people with impaired movement, the mobility scooter represents freedom to enjoy life and take part in the activities many others take for granted.

Shopping, socialising or just getting some fresh air can be a lot easier with the right scooter.To help people get the most out of a mobility scooter, Stockton Shopmobility joined forces with Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council for the Scoot Safe Campaign.On Wednesday 20, Thursday 21 and Friday 22 June 2007 the Shopmobility team was in Stockton High Street and invited anyone who had a scooter, or was thinking of getting one, to come along and learn how to drive them safely.There were demonstrations and a test track to try out the latest models.

Carers and family members were also welcome to attend and learn more about mobility scooters.For more information about the Scoot Safe Campaign, call Stockton Shopmobility Ltd on (01642) 605676.

I also got my five minutes of fame, coming across the crossing in my powerchair
