Community Bus – Birthday Celebration

The Community Bus 34 has been running for a year now and is proving to be a lifeline to those who would otherwise not be able to get out.  To celebrate its first birthday, the bus will be at the Isle of Wight Steam Railway this weekend, 8th September, where you can meet some of the volunteer drivers who will be able to provide information to both users and potential volunteers.  It is the Heritage Open Weekend & Model Railway Exhibition at the Steam Railway this weekend where there will be free admission and car parking.

Please come along and meet the crew – a warm welcome awaits.
