The leader of the borough council, Cllr Brian Long, and a trustee of West Norfolk Community Transport, Sue Fraser, have visited Shopmobility at their base near St James car park in King's Lynn.
West Norfolk Community Transport (WNCT) introduced Shopmobility in 2001 as a response to the need from local residents and visitors who live with mobility issues to access everything the town has to offer.
A range of mobility scooters and electric wheelchairs are available to hire from their base in St James Multi-story car park. Additionally there is a Dial-a-Bus service to the town centre.
Cllr Brian Long said: “The Borough Council has long supported the work that West Norfolk Community Transport do. Without their help some people may not be able to get into town and enjoy the shops and historic landmarks.
“Sue and I have had mobility issues so we understand how important this service is. WNCT give people access beyond their home and help reduce social isolation.”
West Norfolk Community Transport is a registered charity and is supported by the borough council and Norfolk County Council.
