Bakewell and Eyam Community Transport

South Darley Parish Council would like to draw your attention to the services of Bakewell and Eyam Community Transport:

We are a local charity, offering a variety of transport services covering the Derbyshire Dales (north of Matlock) and Hope Valley.

From our base in Great Longstone, we offer a varied programme of trips, available to everyone, using our easily accessible vehicles. The programme includes shopping trips, visits to garden centres and lunch outings to a range of venues. These are door to door journeys allowing those who do not have access to, or cannot use public transport, to remain independent and active. The dates are regularly published in the Peak Advertiser and on our Facebook page.

Our volunteer car scheme provides individual tailor-made journeys to medical appointments for those who would otherwise struggle to access essential healthcare services, including hospital appointments, opticians, dentists and clinics.

We also offer affordable and flexible group transport which is available to local community groups and clubs.

All our services are heavily reliant on volunteers who generously offer their time in a variety of different ways – from car scheme drivers who use their own vehicles, to minibus drivers, passenger assistants and volunteers running our second-hand book shop, Book End, in Bakewell. We would be very pleased to hear from you if you are interested in joining our friendly team – all our volunteering opportunities are very flexible, with no regular commitment required – just a few spare hours can make a BIG difference to someone else.
