Officials from the Japanese government are to visit Sutton to learn about wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
Two delegates from Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism will be visiting Sutton Shopmobility, based in the St Nicholas Centre's car park, next week to find out more about the organisation.
The ministers, accompanied by an interpreter and the first secretary for the Japanese embassy, are coming to the UK to find out more about transport services for elderly and disabled people.
Sutton Shopmobility allows anyone to hire motorised and non-motorised wheelchairs and scooters to help them get around the town centre.
The ministers and their party will be welcomed to Sutton Shopmobility by scheme manager Amanda Beck and Councillor Simon Wales at 10am on Monday.
