Fish Scheme 40 yrs

Many Haddenham residents will be aware of the 'Fish Scheme' — a registered charity that provides transport for Haddenham residents in need.

It is run by a team of volunteers (currently around 80 in number) who provide local people with transport to the Medical Centre, hospital and dentist appointments, the hairdressers, local shopping etc. The scheme carries out in excess of 900 lifts each year — an invaluable service for those Haddenham residents who have difficulties getting about.

If you'd like to know more about the Fish Scheme, or wish to volunteer as a co-ordinator or driver, please get in contact with Jeanne Watt on 291337 or Alison Green on 292088. More information can also be obtained from the Fish Scheme website.

Free transport schemes also operates on a wider geographical scale in Buckinghamshire, and free training is available for potential volunteer drivers. The next training session is taking place on Wednesday 26th February.

This training is aimed at anyone who volunteers their time to help members of their community, particularly those who are providing voluntary car services.

Spaces are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

The Venue: Green Park, Seminar Room 2, Stablebridge Rd, Aston Clinton, Bucks HP22 5NE
