High flyers at Waddington Air Show!

Once again the organisers of the show have put on some truly amazing air displays, featuring a wide variety of modern and historic aircraft. After some initial electrical problems caused delays in readying our fleet, the weekend picked up well. Customer bookings were full and they made use of the scooters, exploring the large range of attractions and watching the exciting aerial displays.     The top air attractions this year included the Euro fighter, displaying its amazing aerobatic capabilities. The Lancaster bomber flyer over accompanied by a Spitfire and Hurricane was a truly impressive sight and a fitting memory to the 70 years since the ...

Womad Music Festival 2013

We’ve been fortunate to experience our first year of helping at this festival and what a great time we’ve had. From talking with customers around the festival we can tell they’ve appreciated the use of the scooters, as the site is very large and there is so much to explore. With over 100 musical groups/acts having performed over the four days, there’s been something for everyone’s tastes, from dynamic african dance through to orchestral music, with drum and percussion workshops where the public can join in for free!

Chatsworth Country Fair 2011

A very reluctant, unsure gentleman came to collect his scooter in the morning but the quote, “I was wrong” came from a very happy, relaxed gentleman when he returned it late in the afternoon. His family were dumbstruck but delighted by his words (pictured above). This to me not only summed up our experience at Chatsworth but also the whole of the summer wherever our service has been used. “Brilliant”, “couldn’t have done without it”, “made my day” are just a few of the oft repeated statements from the majority of our returning customers.  Also, the unintentional humour on such occasions - “It was an absolute godsend, we lost ...
