West Bridgford Shopmobility

Mobility When You Need It!


Just a reminder that we will be closed on Good Friday (15th April) and Easter Monday (18th April) and open again at 10am on Wednesday 20th April.

We are open for the hire of scooters and wheelchairs. Our membership fee is £20 per annum and this allows you free use of a scooter during our opening hours - Mon, Wed & Fri 10-2 - ideal for a bit of shopping on the Avenue or a drive around the park. If you have upcoming trips and holidays, then you can hire a dismantlable  scooter or a wheelchair for a weekly fee plus a returnable deposit - just pop it in the boot of the car and you're ready to go!

If you have not used our service before, or just want to know what we can offer, then feel free to drop into the office behind West Bridgford Library to have a chat with us and look at the different types of scooters and wheelchairs available. We're more than happy to give advice and reassurance to new or potential users so you can decide whether our membership will be useful to you and your family.

We look forward to seeing you soon

Opening Hours - Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10am to 2pm

Autumn is definitely upon us, but there are still some lovely sunny days. So if you feel like a drive round the park or shopping on the Avenue, remember, as a member, you can use a scooter locally for a few hours free of charge. Our annual membership fee is now £20.

Also, if you are planning a trip away this autumn, you can hire a collapsible scooter or a wheelchair from us to pop in your boot for your holiday. Call in to the office behind the Library or give us a ring on 0115 9815451 to make your booking. We ask for a returnable deposit of £50 for a scooter and then the hire charge is £30 per week; for a wheelchair the deposit is £30 and £20 hire charge per week.


West Bridgford Shopmobility is a charity that provides mobility devices (manual and powered wheelchairs, walkers and scooters) for anybody who has a mobility problem, enabling them to visit shops and places of interest in central West Bridgford.

The immobility may be permanent or temporary, and caused by disability, age, illness or accident; it’s not necessary to be registered as disabled to take advantage of our service.

We also operate a short-term hire scheme (payable weekly) with scooters and wheelchairs which can be dismantled to go in your car, enabling you, for example, to:

  • Take it away on your holiday in the UK
  • support a visitor with mobility problems
  • help you after illness, or discharge from hospital

Here’s how Shopmobility can make life easier for you! 

  1. You can take your UK holiday without worrying about getting around easily when you’re there!
  2. If you’re visited by someone who has mobility problems, don’t keep a scooter or a wheelchair in the house ‘Just In Case’ – we can provide you with one when you need it!
  3. If you’ve been ill, or are recuperating after a hospital stay, we can help you to get around again!

Visit us - we're in the West Bridgford Library complex - you can call us on 0115 981 5451 or email us at [email protected]

We hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to our website. There's much more to come!
