TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF SERVICE (NOVEMBER 2020)
Our service and how to book ...
We have 5 chairs at present. Pictured below are the Sandcruiser (the blue chair) and we have 2 of these, the smaller Sandpiper (yellow) and the Hippocampe (the three wheeler). We also have a De-bug (photo soon!) so we can offer a range to suit ages and most levels of mobility.
We also have a MoLift 205 hoist that can transfer between chairs. You need to bring your own sling (to fit a 4 point sling bar) and it's the individual's carer who must take responsibility for the transfer.
In all cases the chair user must be accompanied as all the chairs require a second person.
You can book a chair in advance by telephoning 03000 111 003.
Let us know what day and time (between 10am and 4pm) and leave your contact details. We will call back to take some more information and confirm availability. Chairs can be booked any day of the week.
We are aiming to be open every Saturday and Sunday - other days will be covered according to the demand. Find us by the Central car-park at FY7 6QE, just along the Promenade from Marine Hall and opposite the Mount Hotel.
The service is free. We are a registered charity - donations on the day are welcome or see our Just Giving page.
We will ask you to complete a couple of forms and bring 1 piece of ID with your address on before you go out.
As part of the 'check-out' process you will be advised on beach safety and we recommend all visitors to check the information on our website kindly provided by Fleetwood Coastguard. We also clean and prepare the chairs between uses and operate within our COVID-19 policy.
After your visit any feedback is appreciated and if you've taken some photos, please feel free to tag us on Facebook using @FleetwoodBW, share them on our page or send them to us - we will take this as permission to use the photos in our marketing.
