Questionnaire – We recently sent out a questionnaire to all our volunteer drivers, we have had a very positive response, when we have received them all we will be reporting back with the findings. We are hoping to do a similar questionnaire for our passengers in the near future.
Tom Bowden has a very generous offer to put to us, he would like his property to be managed by ourselves for the rest of his lifetime, allowing him to remain in the property, then on his death for the property to be held in Trust with one or two other charities/bodies to allow them to have the income after management costs. This will now be discussed fully with the Trustees.
Date of Next AGM: 18th July 2024
