. . . it's a good idea to learn scooter skills as that can help you make a decision and will help your confidence.

If you don't yet have a scooter, in association with Clearwell Mobility, we can provide one for your use during the Stay Safe session.

Please ask about this when you register as we need to make sure one is available.

You will be covered by our insurance for personal injury and third-party injury or damage while using the scooter during the event.

You will:

• Gain useful everyday safety advice to help yourself and others
• Appreciate how pedestrians interact with scooter users
• Improve manoeuvrability, awareness and control skills
• Better understand the law∗ affecting the use of mobility scooters
• and - take away a copy of our Mobility Scooter Buying Guide to help you choose correctly.

PLUS - lots of useful tips to keep you SAFE!

(∗ For instance, powered wheelchairs and scooters MUST NOT travel faster than 4 mph on pavements or in pedestrian areas. This is far quicker than most people walk and you will need to reduce your speed to avoid injuring other pavement users.)

A scooter safety session lasts up to two hours starting at 2.30 pm on a Wednesday - and is FREE
