New disability friendly playground equipment in Lowestoft!

The team at East Coast Mobility were delighted to hear that the Mayor of Lowestoft Stephen Ardley has officially opened the new “disability roundabout” at Nicholas Everitt Park with representatives from Sentinel Leisure Trust and members of the community.

The idea was first put forward by Waveney Sportsability chairman Rachel Bayliss, 44, whose grand-daughter, Katie Barnard, three, regularly visits the park but was unable to use the play equipment due to a disability.

Ms Bayliss said: “This development will give Katie, and children like Katie, the opportunity to experience the same fun as other children growing up – which up until now she has not been able to enjoy.

“It is so lovely to see the smile on her face and moving forward we have plans to provide further equipment.

“Children, like Katie, have the right to play and thanks to equipment like this, they are now able to do just that.

“It would be nice to think that other play areas will follow suit.”

Claire Henwood, sports and leisure development manager at Sentinel Leisure – which provides sport and leisure services across Waveney – said: “The roundabout gives those with disabilities the chance to play and allows disabled children and abled bodied children to play together which will be great to see.”

Funded by Section 106 money, which builders have to provide when creating new developments, the roundabout is equipped with two rubber stoppers to hold a wheelchair in place and can even allow a full sized motorised chair to be secured safely.

Mr Ardley said: “It is an absolute pleasure to officiate this occasion because it makes the playground more accessible to all.

“In the future there are plans to expand upon this, particularly introducing disabled friendly swings to the Nicholas Everitt playground.”

Long may this support of the less abled in our community continue!

A very pleasant place to go for your mobility equipment. Staff are very knowledgeable and very helpful.

I've used them for several years now and they have always accommodated all my disability needs.

I feel I must write and say a huge thank you for the service my wife and I received last week when we came to look at new scooters.

We were both very pleased with how comfortable and reliable they are and were pleasantly surprised at the professional approach we received from Grant.

Mr Angel

We've tried the rest and now we're with the best!

I recently needed to purchase a recliner chair for my mother, I contacted East Coast Mobility having dealt with them before, our needs were sorted over the phone, efficiently, with compassion and delivered within 48 hours.

Despite my mother not keen on a recliner chair she absolutely loves it!

Shane Pettingill

Excellent service! We're so glad we used East Coast Mobility for my parent's Stairlift.

Scott came round to assess our requirements - very professional and polite. A time slot was proposed that suited everyone and a week later installation was completed in just over 2 hours.

A brilliant solid stairlift, which is speedy, a fraction of the cost of some leading manufacturers and comes with a 12 month warranty.

We can't fault these guys - really chuffed!

It all worked out well in the end.
Easy Access Ramp is pucker!

Love Lynda

We are delighted to recommend the Tandem Mobility Scooter which we have had for two years. It has been great to travel in, and has meant my wife and I could go out together.

Having bought the Canopy as well means the Tandem is an all weather commodity, so we get all year round enjoyment from it.

Service and care from East Coast Mobility is excellent.

Thank you for adding colour to our lives!

Mr Blossfeldt

Excellent workmanship and finish. Accessible shower solution delivered to a high standard.

Thanks very much!

Malcolm Lyell

Excellent service. We needed an engineer late in afternoon to fix my father's Stairlift as he could not have got to toilet or bed that night. They left the workshop and attended within 30 mins - fault fixed!

Very helpful and knowledgeable.

Tina Roslyn

Excellent customer service and prompt delivery.

Would highly recommend.
