RSPB Rye Meads has one motorised mobility scooter, and one manual wheelchair available to hire for free to enable greater access to nature for a greater number of our visitors.
To ensure it is available for your use, please call the reserve and book in advance on 01992 708383
For the mobility scooter, we will need your confirmation and agreement to our Mobility Vehicle Health and Safety Declaration on the day. We will need to confirm you are capable of driving the scooter, and reserve the right to refuse this service if we feel you are putting yourself and other visitors at risk.
Whilst the use of these scooters are free of charge, if you feel able and willing to donate to the running costs and maintenance of the vehicles, we’d really appreciate your contribution on a Pay as You Feel basis at the reserve on the day of hire.
RSPB Rye Meads is open every day from 9am-5pm (or dusk if earlier), excluding 25 and 26 December.
