Scooters Get New Home

Vernons Court

8:09am 19th June 2013

Residents at a sheltered housing scheme in Bridport don't have to keep their mobility scooters in the communal lounge anymore.

Magna have built 9 scooter stores for Vernons Court.

Fire regulations meant tenants couldn't keep their transport in communal halls - so Magna have built special shelters complete with charging points.

Resident, Beryl Riglar says she's extremely grateful for the funding, since the scooters allow occupants to have their own independence, commenting: "We are so pleased to have a permanent home for them, which is conveniently on our doorstep. We have to thank Magna for their efforts in funding this project".
