Preston Parish Council would like to make residents aware of this local Community Transport Scheme which is available for any elderly residents who may require help to attend medical appointments, particularly their Covid 19 vaccination appointment.
Drivers are volunteers who have had all the necessary training and checks including risk assessments to enable them to operate during the pandemic. Both driver and passenger will wear masks and the passenger will sit in the back of the car. Anti-septic wipes are used before and after each journey. Drivers will wait to take the person home after their appointment.
There is a minimum cost of £5 for the first 11 miles of any journey with each extra mile charged at 45p. There is also a £2 booking fee. Transport is available 7 days per week and should be booked a week in advance if possible: tel: 01462 689402 between 9.00 and 4.30 Monday to Friday. There is an answerphone so please leave a message if necessary and someone will get back to you.
Anyone who would like to volunteer as a driver should make enquiries on the above number.
