Parish Council Neighbour

 Car Scheme

We had a very successful launch on the 8th of March, with a steady flow of new clients signing up to the scheme. Client      numbers      are      increasing      weekly      along      with      the      journeys      undertaken.      We      now      have      clients      in      Bere      Regis,     Tolpuddle,      Briantspuddle     and Winterborne  Kingston  and  would  very  much  like  some  volunteer  drivers  from  these villages. The   Neighbour   Car   scheme   has   been   set   up   by   the   Parish   Council   to   enable   those   with   mobility   problems   or   difficulty   in   accessing   transport   to   get to, for instance, medical or dental appointments or to go shopping, or, for younger people perhaps to get to a job interview. Some of the questions that are being asked are: Q: Will it cost £10 for a couple to sign up to the scheme? A: No, one registration per household. Q: Do I have to pay for four journeys, if the driver takes me and does not wait? A: As   we   are   not   charging   for   a   service   but   asking   for   a   voluntary   contribution,   although   you   will   be   advised   of   the   contribution   it   is   up   to   the   client how much that they can afford to put in. Q: Would you be able to take me somewhere other than a medical appointment? A:   Yes,   we   are   available   for   any   essential   journey   that   you   wish   to   make,   but   usually   the   transport   will   be   to   local   towns   such   as   Poole,   Blandford, Dorchester or Wareham, and not normally, for instance, to go to an airport to go on holiday. Q: Will you be able to take me somewhere on a regular basis? A: Yes, so long as there is a driver available. Q: Are there any age restrictions for the scheme? A: No, we want to be able to help anyone who has transport issues. Q: Will it matter if I don’t use it very often? A: No, we are here when you need us. Q: Do I have to live in Bere Regis to register for the scheme? A:   No,   we   already   have   clients   in   Tolpuddle,   Briantspuddle   and   Winterborne   Kingston.   For   more   information   contact   Brenda   House   on   01929   471 255 For more information contact Brenda House on 01929 471 255
