Spring NEWS 2022

The Community Minibus is back!

Following a long enforced break due to the Pandemic and rules concerning infection control and passenger safety, Saturday trips to WGC have recommenced.

In these difficult times it is essential for isolated, elderly and vulnerable residents to be able to get out in a social and supportive group. This is possible thanks to the special Minibus hired from HCC whose drivers are particularly kind and helpful we are very pleased to report.

At present we are just visiting WGC but where there is demand other locations can be included such as Welwyn North Station, Hertford, Stevenage and occasional Special Outings to for example St Albans Market or Garden Centres which have been particularly popular.

There is capacity now for extra passengers who pay £5 for a Return Trip.  This is a subsidised “Fare” made possible by continuing grants and donations from Tewin Parish Council, Friends of Tewin and East Herts Council to whom we are all extremely grateful.

The Steering Group, which comprises Minibus users, will soon be meeting again and we are looking for new Members who oversee the Project and decide on the timing and destinations of the Timetable. Contact tim.hayward-smith@cdaherts.org.uk 01992 289060 if interested.

You can still Book your place on the Saturday Minibus and to pay your Fare (£2.50 single, £5 return. Under 18s half price) Call Ann Kevis on 01438 717473.
