"Connecting local people with places"
We have recently secured some funding from the Department for Transport which has enabled us to replace our oldest minibus (Lady Annabella) with Lady Elizabeth. This is fantastic news for our local community and we are very appreciative of this help from the Government. Trustees David Grenham and Paul Baskcomb met up with local MP Mark Spencer to showcase our new vehicle complete with the DforT Community Fund stickers.

Many people are finding they are able to get out and about to friends, social events, meetings and appointments by using the Village Bus. It has a lift to help wheel chair users and those for whom steps are difficult.

Transport to Freedom
We are thrilled to be able to report that we have finally been able to emerge from the lockdown period and welcome back on board some of our regular passengers. All the Government Covid guidelines have been put in place to keep everyone safe. We are only able to carry five passengers (six if two are from the same household) so you will need to call Karen on 01623 490888 or 07484610422 to book your seat on all our outings. If you are thinking of a family trip out please also get in touch.
We are continually monitoring passenger interest and now have two of our vehicles prepared for travel. You will see from the photograph that the adapted seating allows the recommended social distancing to be followed.
We continue to help out our local shops with food/prescription deliveries in Lady Mary. A great example of our community working together during this prolonged, difficult time.
