Two specially-designed Vitality in Motion (ViMo) wheelchairs will be available for use on one of the nature tracks at Gray’s Bush Scenic Reserve from tomorrow.

A 10am event will highlight the joint efforts of Parafed Gisborne Tairawhiti and Department of Conservation (DoC) to get more people engaging with nature.

A ViMo chair is an all-terrain wheelchair and thanks to DoC’s “healthy nature, healthy people” initiative, Te Ngarutira and others will be able to enjoy the nature trail.

The Heritage Walk and Info Day tomorrow will provide opportunities for wheelchair users to trial the ViMo, get up close and personal with nature and learn some history about Gray’s Bush.

Parafed Gisborne Tairawhiti has been trialing the chairs at various locations in Gisborne.

Parafed and DoC will also have ViMos available for users wanting to access different reserves in the city.
