Red 2!

Picked up my spare power chair from Solutions Mobility based up near Nottingham.  I've been toying with the idea of getting a spare chair as I am now almost totally dependent on my power chair and would be lost without it.
As I currently own a Quickie Salsa I decided to choose the same model with all the same kit on it but obviously a little newer.

After spending several weeks looking on the internet I found a company on eBay called Solutions Mobility based just north of Nottingham.  I saw one of the chairs they had list seemed to fit the bill so I gave them a call.  I spoke to Sue and enquired about the chair I saw and arranged a viewing.
Sue and Stuart couldn't have been more helpful.  The chair was bought out and Stuart started adjusting the chair to fit my measurements.  I tried the chair, handed over the cash and came away with Red 2!

I would totally recommend Solutions Mobility - nothing is a problem to them and they are more than willing to help and advise - superb customer service and value for money.

Rugby World Cup 2015 - Fuji v Uruguay

I was very lucky to receive two tickets for one of the RWC 2015 games at Stadium in Milton Keynes via the ticketing ballot held last year.
Tickets arrived in due course and blue badge parking was very easy to arrange via the dedicated phone number.

We arrived at the stadium early to park up, grab some food (and a beer!) and take in the atmosphere prior to kick off.  Unfortunately the weather was a little on the damp side but with plenty of cover there were no problems keeping dry.
Stadium MK is a superb new stadium with plenty of facilities for both abled and the less abled.  Parking is right on site, bars are easily accessible and there are plenty of easily accessible toilets.  Staff are always on hand and more than willing to help if required.

The games itself was very good.  Two physically strong teams both wanting to win that 3rd place to automatically qualify for the next World Cup in Japan.
Fiji were slightly edging it but there was always the risk Uruguay would come back.

Final score was 47 v 15 with Fiji running in 5 tries in total.  Atmosphere was excellent with a record stadium attendance of 30,085.
