Arthur’s life is on the move
Amputee is presented with mobility scooter.
HONITONIAN Arthur Rattenbury is enjoying a new lease of life, getting around town on a motorised scooter.
Mr Rattenbury, 59, of St Cyres Road, suffers from diabetes and has had a leg and part of his foot removed.
He was presented with the scooter by Carol Gilson, on behalf of the Joe Gilson Mobility Scheme which was set up in memory of Carol’s late husband.
“I am very pleased and think Carol was good to do what she did for me,” said Mr Rattenbury.
