We’re back up and running!
Please follow our Facebook page @thefriendlybus for updates.
We know how difficult self-isolation has been for our passengers. Many have never felt so lonely and have really appreciated our volunteers calling them each week or the Friendly Swap Shop bus visiting with books and puzzles. We couldn’t have done this without the amazing help from our volunteers and local community donating items for the bus, thank you.
Our bus trips are back on!
We’re now running our weekly shopping trips again. As members of the Community Transport Association (CTA) we continue to follow their guidance and we have various safety measures and cleaning practices in place. All members can find more information in their monthly newsletter.
If you're not currently a member but you're interested in joining the Friendly Bus, call us on 01952 881145 between 9am to 1pm, Monday to Friday or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re not ready to go out yet or you've been told to self isolate for 14 days….
Don’t worry. If you need us – we’re still here. If you’re feeling lonely and would like someone to talk to, please call us and we’ll match you to a Friendly Voice Volunteer. If you need to get to a medical appointment, we’ll try to find a volunteer to take you. If you need a prescription collecting or can’t get your shopping delivered – please call us. Our office remains closed to public access, but you can still call us on 01952 881145 between 9am to 1pm Monday to Friday or leave a message at any other time.
