Voluntary Car Scheme
*** Currently suspended due to Covid-19 ***
The service is available to anyone who lives in the Parish who is unable to access public transport, or needs to get to an appointment that cannot be met using public transport. The scheme will initially be aimed at medical and pre-arranged appointments.
All journeys will need to be pre-booked (minimum of 48 hours notice), the drivers will collect you from home and take you to your destination with a return journey if required. A small fee to cover the journey will be payable to the driver.
The initial scheme will respond to requests for journeys between 3 and 15 miles from home for which a fare between £3.40 and £8.20 will be charged.
Our drivers are all volunteers who use their own cars and do not charge for their time. Their expenses are paid based on the mileage as a contribution towards their running costs.
If you are interested in the scheme as either a service user or a volunteer driver, please contact Mrs. J Tams on 01782 960241 who will be happy to provide more information.
The service can be called upon via the contact number of 07907 496 048 where you can leave a message for the coordinator.
