We have invested over £7,000 to provide two brand new specially designed beach wheelchairs with large pneumatic wheels which just slide over sand so that you can all* enjoy on the Lowestoft South Beach.
Whether it's a lazy day on the sand in the summer, or a brisk stroll along the beach in spring or autumn with the dog, come and hire a beach wheelchair from the Beach Office (hut 106) so that everyone in the family can enjoy the sand. Pushers are required as it's a little tricky to manhandle the wheels in the usual way.
*Please note that you must be able to transfer yourself from your usual wheelchair onto a beach wheelchair as unfortunately we do not have a hoist available. The chairs are supplied with a chest strap but do not have a head support. The maximum weight is 25 stone (350 lbs / 158kg). Children should be at least 3' (92cm) tall to fit in the chair.
The Lowestoft Beach Officer (located in hut 106) will be pleased to look after your traditional wheelchair whilst you have a beach wheelchair out on loan. £20 CASH refundable deposit required. Terms & conditions will need to be signed and adhered to.
