Rural isolation : interested in setting up a bus service?

The Walgrave Wellbeing Charity (WWC) is testing out the option that local villages may like to use their bus for trips for people isolated in the village.  In Walgrave there are weekly shopping trips to Market Harborough or Kettering for a couple of hours which are very popular. A return ticket to Market Harborough has been costed at £4.50 return so very accessible to those on low incomes. There are also trips to other events or days out at weekends tat could be arranged.

Is anyone interested in investigating whether we can extend this service to Holcot? Setting up a service using the WWC bus would require coordination, volunteer driving and other activities. If you are interested please contact our clerk Lisa – clerk@holcotvillage.co.uk.
