David Allan: June 2016
Are you a Driver?
Can you spare a couple of hours every month or two?
The Library Club, which caters for older people in the town, meets once a month on a Wednesday afternoon when the library would normally be closed. There is help on hand to choose books, an opportunity for hearing some poems or prose, and lots of chat over tea and biscuits.
Quite a few of those who attend the Club rely on being picked up by minibus — and this is where you might be able to help! Would you be able to drive the bus occasionally, picking folk up between 2pm and 2.30pm, and delivering them home between 4pm and 4.30pm?
The Library Club is a GAP initiative and is organised by Helen Jesty, the Anna Chaplain. It takes place on the second Wednesday of each month.
If you have D1 on your licence, then you are entitled to drive a minibus. Further training will be provided under the MiDAS Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme.
Please do give this serious thought, and if you think you might be able to help please call David Allan on 01420 84739 for further details.
