Scooter Tutors to offer free safety training for mobility scooter users in Horsham.

Safety training to help mobility scooter users improve their skills are very soon to be available in Horsham, thanks to the Horsham District Older Peoples Forum (HDOPF) and Horsham Town Community Partnership (HTCP).

The volunteer-run sessions will offer two and a half hours of safety training. There will be no charge for attending involve a short indoor session that will be immediately followed outside by practical driving sessions covering cornering, turns, doorways, kerbs, slopes, and courtesy to other pavement users.

Drivers will be accompanied on pavements, paths, into shops and other public places by 'Scooter Tutors' who will give advice and tips suited to the individual driver.

If you or someone you know is interested in joining one of the Skills & Safety Sessions, please phone 01403 269384 to register interest. Your contact details will be recorded so you can be informed when the first sessions are ready to take place.

More volunteer 'Scooter Tutors' needed

Volunteer tutors do not need experience of riding a mobility scooter as they will gain this from a 'full immersion' day at QEF and the use of a new training manual. They need only commit to a possible once a week session for 2/3 hours.
If you would like to help improve the safety and skills of local mobility scooter drivers in this way, please call David on 07729 376345.

An outdoor gym for Horsham Park

As a first for Horsham town, an outdoor gym has been installed in Horsham Park, and will encourage people to become more active and healthy.

The equipment, which is situated in two different sites in the park, is free to use and fully accessible for users of all fitness levels.

Over the coming months the council’s Wellbeing team will be providing free training sessions on how to use the gym equipment and signage at the equipment locations will provide instructions on how to use each item safely.
