The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR BODY - For more in­for­ma­tion on Mo­bil­ity Manawatu’s prod­ucts and ser­vices see www.mo­bil­i­ty­manawatu.co.nz, or sim­ply call in and see Rob and Leti­tia at 222 Ruahine Street in Ter­race End.

Af­ter 10 years serv­ing the peo­ple of the Manawatu, Mo­bil­ity Manawatu on Ruahine Street is un­der­go­ing a freshen-up. How­ever, while their shop frontage and logo may be new ev­ery­thing else re­mains the same. Still in­de­pen­dent and lo­cally owned and op­er­ated by Rob and Leti­tia Stick, Mo­bil­ity Manawatu con­tin­ues to pro­vide qual­ity prod­ucts to as­sist with mo­bil­ity and other health-re­lated is­sues, along with tech­ni­cal backup and friendly, pro­fes­sional ad­vice.

To cel­e­brate 10 years, Mo­bil­ity Manawatu has a num­ber of events and pro­mo­tions planned for the com­ing months, be­gin­ning with a draw for a $100 gro­cery voucher give­away for any pur­chase made in full, dur­ing Fe­bru­ary. Also planned for Fe­bru­ary is a ‘Scooter Shine Up’ day on Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 26.

Rob Stick says: ‘‘This is our chance to give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity. Peo­ple can bring their mo­bil­ity scooter down here be­tween 10am and 2pm and we’ll give it a clean and pol­ish at no charge. There will also be re­fresh­ments avail­able for peo­ple while they wait for their scooter.’’

An­other event in Fe­bru­ary is the ‘Show your Abil­ity’ Expo com­ing to Arena Manawatu on Thurs­day Fe­bru­ary 25, where there will be a dis­play of the huge va­ri­ety and types of equip­ment and aids avail­able for peo­ple who need help with their mo­bil­ity. The expo runs from 9am un­til 3pm and en­try is free.

In March, Mo­bil­ity Manawatu will be at the Cen­tral Dis­tricts Field Days where they will have a se­lec­tion of their lat­est golf cruis­ers, scoot­ers and tilt car­ri­ers, along with other ac­ces­sories such as the new tilt mo­tor­cy­cle car­rier.

‘‘Th­ese tilt car­ri­ers are pur­posely de­signed to carry farm bikes and scoot­ers and, as they at­tach to the back of your ve­hi­cle, you can trans­port your mo­tor­bike with­out need­ing lifts, ramps or hoists to get them into the back of a van or ute,’’ says Rob.

Mo­bil­ity Manawatu will also have a num­ber of loan scoot­ers at the Field Days but as Rob says, that be­cause of de­mand, th­ese will need to be pre-booked through Leti­tia.

For a num­ber of years Rob has been pro­vid­ing free train­ing and safety ad­vice to scooter rid­ers and this year he plans on in­creas­ing the num­ber of train­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for clubs and rest homes. There are cur­rently scooter groups in Levin, Palmer­ston North, Feild­ing and Whanganui. So if you want to find out more about scooter safety or how to con­tact a scooter group, give Leti­tia a call on (06) 3577943.

Mo­bil­ity Manawatu cel­e­brates 10 years with a new logo and sig­nage for their shop at 222 Ruahine Street.
