We're all set up at Glastonbury Festival and ready for you to hire scooters and wheelchairs!
We look forward to seeing all you happy Festival folk over the next few days. Thanks for your patience and understanding over the last few weeks whilst we've dealt with the burglary and replacing equipment.
The festival weather gave us all seasons in one day, getting fair use of the suncream and brollies! A fantastic inline, as always, with this year’s event including Genesis Extended, The Australian Pink Floyd Show, Chas and Dave, Marillion, along with Fairport Convention and many other fine acts.
Thanks to all those who booked scooters and wheelchairs - we hope you had a great time and from talking with you all, it sounds like you had a fantastic few days. To those who had difficulties with some break downs in the rain - we’re glad we were able to help get ...

Thankyou so much to all in ‘Team A Plus’ (in no particular order) - Barry, Sam, John, Kate, Martin, Kim, Ian, Yvonne, Pete, Cath, Sue, Graham and Emma, ...
