Mobility support for visitors to Shropshire County Show

People with mobility issues attending this month’s Shropshire County Show have the opportunity to hire scooters and wheelchairs – thanks to a partnership with a county-based company.

Scott Marston and Sarah Ford from Shropshire Mobility Solutions.

Shropshire Mobility Solutions is the mobility partner of the show meaning people can pre-book scooters and wheelchairs in advance, ensuring they don't miss anything across the showground on the day.

The show, one of the biggest one-day attractions in the region, takes place on Saturday, May 25 at the DMOS People West Mid Showground in Shrewsbury, with thousands of visitors expected to enjoy an action-packed programme to suit all ages and tastes.

Shropshire Mobility Solutions, based in Welsh Frankton near Oswestry, is the regular mobility partner at the show and will have a stand on the showground where pre-booked scooters and wheelchairs can be collected on the day.

Scott Marston, of Shropshire Mobility Solutions, said: “Shropshire County Show is a fantastic event and covers a very large area. There is so much going on and it can be difficult to fit everything in – particularly if you have mobility problems.

“Hiring a scooter or wheelchair can help to make the day and ensure every member of the family can enjoy the event. We will have a full stand to show people how accessible the world can be for all but we are asking people to book their scooter for the show in advance so we can ensure it is right for their needs."

Ian Bebbington, of the Shropshire County Show, said: “The showground has varying terrain so it is essential the mobility offering suits the showground and visitor needs. Shropshire Mobility Solutions’ range and experience in the industry makes them the perfect choice to be our mobility partner.

“The show is nearly here so if you need to hire a scooter to enjoy the day to its full potential, get in touch with Shropshire Mobility Solutions as soon as possible.”

Tickets for Shropshire County Show are available online and children aged 15 and under are admitted for free.
