Help to access concerts/help with transport:

Would you love to come to concerts but need help with transport or mobility issues?

One of the projects we had planned with funding from the Coop Community Fund wass to provide transport from different parts of Wensleydale using minibuses. Because of Covid, this has not been possible and we have been forced to limit our plans in 2021 but hope to expand support in 2022. If you need help please contact us and we will see what we can do to help. To discuss particular needs call Carol or Liz on 01969 663026.
