Volunteer Drivers needed for our Car Scheme!

Volunteer Drivers needed for our Car Scheme!

As many of you may have read in the Moulton Scene, Julia Malings and Jenny Aarons requested that Moulton Parish Council take over the running of the Moulton and Overstone Village Car Scheme.

We would like to thank them for the fantastic job they have done over the years, making sure that so many local people, who don't have their own means of transport, get to their medical appointments. The volunteer drivers on the scheme take local people from their home to a medical appointments, in Moulton or Northampton, normally wait and then bring them home.

Passengers pay a small fee to the drivers directly, based on the mileage to help cover fuel costs.

Would you like to be a driver on the scheme?

We will have to review the current restrictions and recruit more drivers before we can start to run the scheme again, but in the meantime we would love to hear from any of you who may be interested in helping other residents in this way.

If we recruit enough drivers, we may also be able to expand the scheme to provide lifts to other appointments/meetings/classes/shopping trips.

You would be DBS checked and receive all the necessary guidance before you start your new role.

Please contact Mary-Jane by email: communityconnector@gmail.com or phone 07484 907438 for more information and to apply.
