To reflect changing use and frequency of the Shopmobility Service in Barnstaple, Go North Devon is waiving membership fees during 2022 so users can â€˜pay as you goâ€™.
From January 4, the following fees apply: membership â€“ free; scooter and powered wheelchair hire - Â£6 per session*; manual wheelchair hire - Â£4 per session*; manual wheelchair overnight hire - Â£4 per day (Â£25 deposit); portable scooter overnight hire - Â£10 per day (Â£100 deposit); portable scooter seven-day hire - Â£50 per week (Â£100 deposit). Deposits are returnable.
* Any length of time between 9am and 2.20pm.
New members need to provide two forms of ID with their name and address and will receive a short training session on the safe use of a wheelchair or scooter, in a designated practice area.
Parking is available next to the centre at Albert Lane (by the bus station) and a permit will be issued. Booking is advisable.
Go North Devon operates under Covid-secure procedures to ensure the safety of clients and staff.
