brilliant company and not the Maclaren major!!They look like all terrain ones but much sturdier. The guy on the end of the phone is so knowledgable and told me my little one was too small for one of his but purchased a City Jogger Elite double (sister company) for both my boys and it is a godsend! Just purchased the sinlge version on Friday for when oldest starts school and I only have one to take out.No VAT paid either xx

thanks i looked at that site the other day and liked the look of them but couldnt mum didnt have the £500 odd to get me one at the time so had to go with the MM which was half the price so we had some transport for him for our trip to scotland on thursday

Hi,
Sorry for coming into this thread a bit late.
Just wanted to give you the information we have on wheelchair services if people are interested - it includes a link to find your local wheelchair service. It's definitely worth remembering that many wheelchair services no longer require a referral from a healthcare professional, so always check to see if you can make the referral yourself. And if they do require a healthcare professional, you don't have to wait for your OT, your GP, physio or anyone else involved can also make the referral....

We also have information on alternative sources of funding to the wheelchair service:
http://www.livingmadeeasy.org.uk/scenario.php?csid=235

If you'd like to have a look at the wide range of buggies or wheelchair available so that you're informed prior to any appointments with your OT or the wheelchair service, you can see them here:
Buggies: http://www.livingmadeeasy.org.uk/children/buggies-%26-accessories-2773/
Wheelchairs: http://www.livingmadeeasy.org.uk/children/wheelchairs-%26-accessories-842/

Hope that's helpful.
Emily,
DLF Occupational Therapist.

The single City Jogger Elite was £275 and worth every penny!It doesn't need a sun canopy as the hood comes so far down and it literally folds with one pull of a strap in the seat,so one handed and lifted in the car while still holding on to child with other hand!!

Hi im new to this site,
but im looking for a pushchair for my son as his alvema pixi's front wheel is on the verge of being totally bust as the foam on the wheel has started to split and fall off the wheel. ive tried glueing it back on and duct taping it but it doesnt last long.
