Omersa New Bug Four Wheel Base

GuestGuest Member Posts: 1,968
Hi i'm wondering if anyone can help. My little boy has just recieved his buggy from wheelchair services. The problem i'm finding is it is not supplied with any accessories e:g raincover. I have found a raincover that will fit but as the buggy has no hood for support the raincover just collapses. I have foun a place that can order the hood and sell it but it is going to cost

    Does your son get a lot of colds or chest infections? if so Wheelchair services should have provided the hood and raincover with the buggy, we got ours for this reason.
