In connection with the departure of HCV Chairman Hugh Stradling (already reported) the committee held a special virtual meeting with Hugh to pay tribute to his work in setting up the service over five years ago. Through his work, "Carrie", the Haddenham Community Vehicle, has provided vital transport links to dozens of local people who would otherwise be unable to travel. In recognition of his inspirational leadership, Hugh was made Honorary President of the group.

Peter Quilleash is now appointed Chairman and bookings should be made through David Hammond on 07945 366779.

A covid-safe service is provided for those needing special assistance to attend vaccination clinics. The free service continues to be provided to those living in Haddenham and surrounding villages and the committee has agreed to extend HCV coverage to include Long Crendon residents.

There's a video showing the Community Vehicle in use here on Youtube
