The New Community Bus has Arrived!

In News by Bembridge PC

The new Friendship Circle Community Bus has arrived in the village and took its maiden journey on Wednesday 11th August.  Expertly driven by Paul Wray with Mike Foreman navigating, Trustees Marianne Sullivan, Liz Mitchel and Liz White, secretary Karen Thomas and treasurer Jacqui McDade were taken on a tour of the village!

The vehicle cost £38,000, so thank you to everyone who helped with the fundraising and IW Foundation for £10,000 grant funding.  Special thanks to previous Trustees Margaret Donlon and Sheila Weedall who worked tirelessly for the Friendship Circle, especially the coffee mornings and organising the mystery tours for residents.

The first Coffee Morning will take place on Saturday 4th September alongside the Parish Councils Have Your Say Day, 10am to noon.
