We have a new donation page on the charity donation website “Give as you Live” – use the links from their page or download the app and percentage of your online spend will be donated to High Wycombe Shopmobility when you shop online from selected retailers such as M&S. You can also make a “cash” donation to us via their site and don’t forget to add gift aid if you are a UK tax payer.
Opening hours from 4th May 2021: Monday – Saturday 9.30am – 4.00pm & Sunday 12.00pm – 4.00pm.
Please phone to book (01494 472277) – messages can be left on our answerphone if necessary.
All customers will need to sanitise their hands before they use our equipment.
We will be implementing several safety measures for both our staff and customers, including a strict limit to the number of customers in the shop at any one time – we will only allow 2 customer’s in the shop at a time
We will continue our rigorous and regular cleaning of all the vehicles and areas within the shop.
Please adhere to the social distancing rules when you visit us to protect yourself and others and please do not come into the shop if you have any covid symptoms.
We were absolutely delighted to receive a Proud of Bucks “Highly Commended” award recognising our service to the community in this hugely difficult year.
We’re very proud to have received this and I hope all our staff, volunteers and customers are proud of the part they play in helping to make our service as successful, safe and accessible as possible. We really appreciate all your support and I think I’d happily describe you all as Public Service Heroes.
We’ll put this award alongside the Tom Hillier Award we received at the end of 2018 which recognised us as the best shopmobility scheme in the country.
Transport for Buckinghamshire will be commencing maintenance works in the High Street to correct loose and uneven paving that can cause trip hazards.
The works are due to commence w/c Monday 28 September 2020 and will last for approximately 12 weeks. Site working hours will be from 08:00 to 17:00 Monday to Friday with perhaps some weekend and night working on areas that cannot be worked on during normal hours.
Some of the repair works required will affect the running lane of the carriageway, and will necessitate reducing High Street access between Corporation Street and Market Square, to enable areas of the stone paving to be re-laid/repaired more efficiently. See the map in the shop for details.
We are really pleased to say that, thanks to a grant from Heart of Bucks, we now have the right equipment to take card and contactless payments for our manual wheelchair hire service (which costs £3 per night/£20 per week + £20 refundable deposit)
We are also able to accept card payments for donations and for the items such as blue badge holders and radar keys we have for sale.
Thank you to all 12 teams that took part in our annual Pancake Race in the Eden Shopping Centre on Shrove Tuesday 25th February. We were delighted to raise £190 from entrance fees and would like to say a very grateful thank you for the kind donations made by Intel and the High Wycombe Beekeepers. This brings the total raised to well over £300. After a bit of controversy, we are pleased to award the David Griffin trophy to the 2020 winners – Eden Security!
We will be open late until 7.15pm if you would like to borrow a wheelchair or scooter to watch the Christmas light switch on at 6.45pm or for a bit of late night shopping. Come and visit our “ChocFest” chocolate tombola stall that evening – we’ve got so much chocolate for you to try and win – 3 tickets for £1.
