Community : Can anyone help?

A note from Victoria Cockerill at Hospital Bungalows…

Due to health reasons I am unable to drive at the moment.  I am looking for someone who would be willing to give our son a lift to Moulton School and Science College – someone who goes through Moulton on their way to work or has children that attend the school.  Approximately 8.00am during term time.  My son is 15 and will be leaving school next May, by when it is hoped I will be able to drive.

We live outside of the village on the Moulton Road at the Hospital Bungalows.  I am willing to contribute to petrol expenses by mutual agreement.

If you can help please call me on 647570

I hope that there is someone in the village that may be able to assist under such difficult circumstances for us at the moment.
