Official opening of Shopmobility at St Johns

I was delighted to officially open the new and invaluable Shopmobility service, alongside the Lord Mayor, Cllr Frank Prendergast, at St John’s Precinct yesterday. The service is being run by the social enterprise Local Solutions, in partnership with St Johns Shopping Centre and Liverpool’s City Central Business Improvement District.

The new service will complement Local Solutions current service in Liverpool One and will help it reach many more people with mobility needs. The Shopmobility will enable local shoppers to access the city centre more freely using equipment such as electric scooters and powered wheelchairs.
