Open day offers police advice and free checks on scooters
Police officers will offer advice to guard against mobility scooters being stolen
when they take part in an open day at a newly-opened Wolverhampton store.
The Crime Prevention team will also outline guidance on where scooters can
and can't be ridden as part of the event at Wolverhampton Mobility.
Free scooter 'health' checks including tests on tyre pressure, tread, brakes
and steering will also be available as well as advice on keeping them in good
Store owner, Marie Johnson said: We have been concerned by recent news
reports about scooters being stolen and wanted to make advice freely
Wolverhampton Mobility came to the rescue of former Crossroads actress
Tina Mullinger who was left stranded after thieves stole her electric scooter
from outside the front door of her Black Country home.
After reading of Mrs Mullinger's plight, Marie offered Tina a new scooter.
Anyone who has a scooter or is thinking of having a scooter is very welcome
at our open day which will also give them the chance to see what else is on
offer, added Marie.
Former nurse Marie, aged 36, quit the health service five years ago and says
the freedom of having her own business has given her back the ability to
genuinely help people - the reason she went into nursing in the first place.
