Marlow’s Shopmobility scooter service under threat

Access to Marlow town centre for people with limited mobility is under threat, according to Marlow Town Council.

Three Shopmobility scooters owned by the Council have provided accessibility to the town for those with limited mobility for a number of years. Now Places for People, the body that manages Court Garden Leisure Centre, has decided it can no longer continue to house the scooters, and the three scooters are looking for a new home.

Mayor Richard Scott appealed for help from the community. “If you have a venue reasonably close to the town centre that the scooters can be collected and returned to — ideally during retail hours, seven days a week — please do get in touch with us to discuss further,” he said. “If a suitable location cannot be found, the scheme will sadly have to cease at the end of July.”
