North Herts CVS Community Transport Scheme

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.

Open Gardens 2021

Open Gardens Poster

Would you be willing to be part of a team to help to organise the very popular Open Gardens event for 2021?

We really hope that this hugely popular event can go ahead next year, even if there will need to be some changes to the usual format due to any restrictions that might be in place at the time.

Meta, Liz and Pam will not be running the event, but would be very willing to pass on any help and tips that a new team might want, and to offer general advice.

It might be that a new team come up with a completely different idea for the day, but if it is to go ahead the car park at PHC has to be reserved in October this year.

If you think you would like to be part of a team to help with this event, please contact us.
