Volunteer Car Service
The Volunteer Car Service scheme enables people who find it difficult to use public transport to attend health appointments and where resources allow shopping trips or social excursions. Our Volunteer Car Service is a non-profit making service where volunteer drivers kindly offer their time and cars to support those members of the community who, due to mobility problems, are unable to use other forms of transport. The transport desk is manned Monday to Friday, 09.30-14.30 Tel: 01233 633219. All journeys must be booked through the office with at least 3 working days notice. Currently there is an annual membership charge of £12 a year, a booking fee of £2 per journey, plus a mileage charge of 50p per mile.
