From 1st April we have significantly increase the number of volunteers permitted in our minibus. While full capacity won't be achieved for a while yet, we hope this will make it easier for you to come on task with us. Face-masks (unless exempt) will continue to be required on our minibus.

Minibus capacity increased

Due to the relaxation in social distancing requirements beyond level 0, we have increased our minibus capacity from 4 to 6 places on a trial basis. We still request that volunteers who are able make their own way to the task site wherever possible, both to reduce close contact and leave spaces free for those without transport. Face coverings are still mandatory and our other safety measures such as assigned seating plans and ventilation are still in place. [More]
