Beach Wheelchair Hire
Due to the generosity of the Axentis Michael Charitable Trust and Weston Hospicecare, the Weston-super-Mare Visitor Information Centre has been donated a brand new specially designed beach wheelchair with large pneumatic wheels which just slide over sand.

Pushers are required as it’s a little tricky to manhandle the wheels in the usual way. The wheelchair is not self-propelling as the regular wheels have been replaced with pneumatic balloon style wheels so that wheeling it on the beach is more comfortable.
