The Scheme was started in 1998 as a result of the Village Appraisal. A need for transport was identified and there were volunteers willing to help. The aim is to provide transport to appointments, shopping etc or collect prescriptions or provisions.
Residents contact one of the co-ordinators who will then arrange a driver from the list of 20 volunteers.
