Volunteers

The Council is always looking for volunteers to drive our community bus to provide transport for elderly and disabled people within the parish. We are looking in particular for drivers who can commit themselves for a few hours on a weekly basis.

You need to be over 25 years of age with a full clean driving licence and previous experience of driving a mini bus and/or MiDAS training would be advantageous.

The bus can be made available at other times for travel for small groups within the parish. Please request details
