Community Car Scheme

 

The Dry Drayton, Caldecote and Hardwick Community Car Scheme helps those who need to make an essential journey - such as for a doctor's appointment or visiting relatives in hospital - and have no other means of transport.

We know how badly needed this scheme is: in January 2019 our volunteer drivers between them covered 2,281 miles. We are very grateful to our co-ordinators and drivers. Without them this could not be achieved and people in the area who cannot drive would have great difficulty getting to essential facilities.

If you need a lift, you can contact one of the Car Scheme co-ordinators. Please contact them at least 48 hours in advance, and only between 8.30am and 5.30pm on week days.

The Co-ordinators to phone are;

Gillian Stott:      07464 069 483

Nicky Kerr:         07464 052 521

Lizzie Coe:          07387 395 296


In emergencies only – Sheila Stephenson; 01954 210 638

If there are no replies and the lift is urgent, please call a taxi

The co-ordinators link passengers with a driver who will pick them up at an agreed time, take them to their destination and deliver them home. All drivers are volunteers and are only reimbursed for their fuel.

 

Costs for journeys are as follows:

 

We are always very welcoming to new volunteer drivers, so if you would like to make a difference and help the community please contact Sheila Stephenson, who would be happy to supply more information and talk through any queries you might have. Volunteers are reimbursed at 45p per mile.

 

Currently we need drivers from Dry Drayton. Over the last three months we have given 53 lifts to people from this village and we have no resident drivers. If there are any Dry Drayton drivers who could volunteer please contact Sheila Stephenson on 01954 210 638 or e-mail sheila1pc@yahoo.co.uk.
