Scooters for hire

A GRANT worth more than £70,000 has been secured to pay for off-road scooters and a mobile toilet, which will be hired out by Derbyshire County Council.

A total of £38,244 will be spent on the five scooters called trampers. The plan is to offer the Trampers for hire from countryside sites such as Shipley Country Park. The mobile Changing Places toilet will cost £35,000 and can be used around the county at events.

Funding for both has come from an Aiming High for Disabled Children grant.
