This entry was posted in General September 10, 2021

As the saying goes, “you wait ages for a bus and then two of them come along at once”- well we are thrilled to announce that two new Ableworld store openings have taken place today in Queensferry and Blackpool.

Our Ableworld Queensferry and Ableworld Blackpool stores come as our 37th and 38th numbered stores, and are exciting additions to our store presence in the North West area. As mobility superstores, both are spacious and airy, and stock our full range of mobility products and also feature Engineering units for our extensive range of servicing options.

There is ample free customer parking available at both stores, and both are located on main roads with bus routes, making them easy to get to and comfortable to visit. At both stores you can be sure of a warm welcome from Store Manager Craig in Queensferry, and Store Manager Angela in Blackpool, with our friendly teams on hand and ready to help with any queries you or a loved one may have. All of our teams are fully trained and will provide you the best advice and give product demonstrations to ensure you are getting the right product for your individual needs.

Our range of products in both stores varies from our smaller aids such as Magnifying aids, Slippers and Medication Management, to our larger mobility equipment such as Mobility Scooters, Powerchairs and Wheelchairs. Whatever the product, the aim is to help people to lead easier, more comfortable and independent lives.

Across all of our 38 stores we currently have our 20th Birthday Sale taking place, with fantastic savings on many of our larger product ranges. If you are looking to purchase any mobility equipment then we urge you to pop into store before 26th September to shop whilst these offers are on.

Ableworld helps Ryan’s Journey towards independence

This entry was posted in July 15, 2021


A few months back a member of ‘Real Men Talk’ visited our Ableworld Mobility Store in Newark. Real Men Talk is a charity set up by a group of friends who have experienced mental health issues. Their aim is to ‘show others it’s good to talk and help others along the way’.

RMT came across a gentleman called Ryan, who they met through their charity. Ryan suffers with a Nerve Tissue Complaint which has made his mobility very limited. Because of this, RMT decided they wanted to surprise Ryan with a new mobility Scooter from Ableworld. RMT began fundraising straight away and overall, they raised an incredible £1000. Ableworld decided to give 20% extra to their fundraising to make the overall cheque £1200.

We liaised a time with Nathan, Paul and Ben, members of RMT, to come into store with Ryan so they could surprise him. When Ryan arrived in store he was greeted by Georgie, Store Manager at Ableworld and he had no idea what was going on. Georgie went on to explain what Real Men Talk and Ableworld have done to help Ryan’s journey to independence. Ryan was completely ‘Overwhelmed’ by the kindness of both Ableworld and RMT. ‘It’s the first time in a very long time I was able to go to Sainsbury’s on my own’ said Ryan, ‘I was telling anybody that would listen to me what Ableworld and my friends at RMT have done for me’. Ryan chose the Sapphire 2 mobility scooter from Ableworld and has since enjoyed using it. Georgie, Store Manager said ‘At one point all four of the men were in tears, it was very humbling to see and I loved working with Real Men Talk to make this happen’.

You can visit your local Ableworld store in Newark at 112 Farndon Road, Newark, NG24 4SE for any Mobility needs.

Tips for Gardening During Summer

This entry was posted in June 4, 2021

From mowing your lawn, to tackling weeds or even potting some new plants - Ableworld want to give you some Top Tips on looking after your Garden this Summer. Schedule some time to sit out in the sun (or most likely, the famous British rain), and give your garden some self-care.
  • Make sure you Keep Cool – Think of ways to cool of your yard. Simple shading solutions can be great, such as an umbrella or a sun shade sail, however there are more natural solutions for those who prefer a more organic garden. Why not plant a tree, or place a fountain? Areas under trees can be 20 degrees cooler than adjacent sunny spots. Fountains can be a soothing way to keep call in the sun from a cooling evaporation effect.
  • Keep your deck nice and fresh – Hosing down your deck or patio can make a huge difference to the feel of your garden. It helps it feel fresh, clean and bright which is perfect for the summer months. Clean down any garden furniture with a wet cloth and notice the glisten of your fresh summer garden.
  • Water your pots in the morning and evening – Did you know, it’s best to water your pots and beds first in the morning or last thing at night?
  • Why not try our multi-use Garden Kneeler – Our Garden Kneeler adds a padded base for additional comfort on your knees whilst you work in the garden. It can also be used as a seat to have a rest and soak up that lovely sunshine during the summer. 
  • Raise the Deck when mowing – A lot of lawns look browner over the summer period. This is mainly to do with setting your cutting height to low on the mower. Start higher with your first cut of the year and slowly work your way down to your desired height. Work your way back up to the highest as we move into early Autumn and this will guarantee a greener, fresher lawn.
We hope you enjoyed Ableworld’s top tips on gardening this summer and found them helpful. Happy Gardening. We hope to see you in your local Ableworld store soon.
