Lutterworth ChairLink Launched
As an addition to the already popular Lutterworth VillageLink which was formally inaugurated in February, Community Minibuses and the Social Car Scheme, Lutterworth Community Transport has now taken delivery of a Wheelchair Accessible Car. The service will assist those in Lutterworth and the surrounding rural communities and those who need to travel between these communities and further afield but who are currently restricted by the lack of suitable transport. Funding for the project has been provided by The Countryside Agency, Welland Partnership, Leicestershire County Council and Lutterworth Volunteer Centre. Additionally, LCC is providing up to £6,000 per annum towards the cost of running the vehicle. Chairlink will be driven both by professional and volunteer drivers and, following a trial period, may also be made available for weekend and evening hire by approved and qualified drivers. News Page
