I had to come and tell everyone of my new found freedom on my mobility scooter. I had used them a couple of times from Shopmobility at shopping centres, and my husband has nagged me to have one of my own which I had resisted until a couple of weeks ago. My sister was taken ill and was diagnosed with a Brain Tumour, she was allowed home to wait for her operation at Kings College, so having 'Madge' has been a god centre with a range of 8 miles I can easily visit my sister and basically go out when my husbands at work. I don't dread going out now, I can nip off while my husband looks in boring shops, and I've been to the coast a couple of times. So if anyone out there has any doubts, don't I'm now dreading the winter.
