Community Transport Scheme

The Community Transport Scheme was set up in the late 90's after the inception of the Council as a way to give something back to our retired residents. Over 60's who are living within the Town Council Boundary can become a member of our Community Transport Group and enjoy outings and theatre trips with door to door travel included.

We aim to provide regular excursions to a variety of destinations. We also frequently provide trips to local musicals, plays and concerts, shopping destinations, visits to gardens and museums and more.

We will write to you frequently to inform you of our upcoming trips, you can pick and choose which events you would like to attend, and you are welcome to attend as many as you would like. We ask that you return your booking slip with the enclosed fee and return to the Council Offices as soon as possible as spaces can be limited. 

You will be picked up from your front door or communal entrance and taken to the event by minibus and then returned back to your door. We also give you a pick up slot in advance so you know when to be ready. All you pay is your ticket cost, refreshment costs if included, and a contribution towards travel costs. 

It's an excellent way to make friends with like minded people and get out of the house! Contact the council for an application form on 01702 716288 or email or alternatively visit the council offices within Leigh Community Centre.
