The council has invested in upgrading its shopmobility service.
Epsom & Ewell Borough Council is one of only a few boroughs in Surrey who provide this non-statutory service to residents and visitors.
The service allows visitors to Epsom with mobility challenges to hire an electric mobility scooter or a manual wheelchair for the duration of their visit to shops in Epsom. The scooters and wheelchairs can be hired on a one-off basis or by those joining the annual membership scheme.
The upgrade includes three new 3-wheeler scooters and three new 4-wheelers scooters which entered service this week.
Shopmobility operates from the Ashley Centre car park between 9:00am and 4:30pm, seven days a week.
Councillor Barry Nash, Chairman of the Community and Wellbeing Committee, said “We think it’s important that the town centre is open to all and we know this service is valued, with some individuals using it several times a week. I am pleased that the new scooters are now available as the shops ramp up for Christmas”.
