Saturday 4th December
The annual Falkirk Accessible Shopping Day will take place on Saturday 4th December.
Dial-A-Journey will transport anyone who registers for the day to and from the Howgate Centre and each individual shopper can choose their pickup point.
Shopmobility re-located to a new unit opposite Bodycare in the Howgate Centre earlier this year. They will try to cater for everyone’s needs, including supplying manual or powered wheelchairs and scooters as well as personal shoppers where required.
Elaine Grant, Falkirk Delivers manager said ‘Unfortunately some customers have been unable to access the town centre due to Covid, we want to ensure they have an opportunity to enjoy some festive cheer whilst Christmas shopping in a safe environment. The Accessible Shopping Day was traditionally held on a Sunday but we moved this to a Saturday so those visiting can enjoy all our fantastic shops and the festive producers’ market on the High Street ‘.
Those registered will receive a voucher for some refreshments in town centre cafes, Braveheart will have a drop-in clinic at their shop opposite the Howgate help desk and Forth Valley Sensory Centre will have a stand with information on how they can support people with sight or hearing loss.
If you are interested in registering for the day, or want more information, please contact Shopmobility on 01324 630500, they open Monday to Saturday from 10am-4pm or visit the Howgate help desk.
The deadline for registration is Saturday 20th November.
