Scheme closed for one week

Holidays and a shortage of drivers means the Leverington Car Scheme will be closed to passengers for one week from August 19.

The scheme is an important means of transport for people who reply on it for medical appointments, visits to the dentist, hospital and other appointments. More volunteer drivers are welcome, everyone has to be CRB checked.

Anne Allgar, chairperson, explained people who have time to spare a couple of times a week are welcome to get in touch to find out more.

She explained it is voluntary but drivers are paid expenses to cover some costs. “It is not a money-making thing or a full time job,” explained Anne.

If you have time to spare and want to find out more, call 01945-464450.
