A local community project is at the earliest stages of planning, with the aim of acquiring a Wheelchair Access Vehicle for community use.
The aim is to acquire a permanently adapted vehicle for Haddenham that will allow a wheelchair to be rolled into the back with a person in it. The vehicle will also be able to transport others who are disabled but can still transfer to a normal seat.
This transport facility is needed because getting to medical appointments can be very difficult with the resources that are currently available. Fish Scheme does a fantastic job in providing transport for elderly and less immobile residents of the village, but the private cars used by volunteer drivers are invariably unable to accommodate wheelchairs.
A suitably modified vehicle could also be available for transporting small groups of people with mobility issues to village meetings.
Organisers are keen to hear from village members who have been involved in transporting any people with disability and their views on this proposed project.
Please email or phone Dr Hugh Stradling on 01844-291607. Or email him at: email@example.com
