Cream Tea for Call & Go Passengers
On 24 June, a group of Community First Call & Go passengers enjoyed a trip around the New Forest, culminating in a delicious cream tea at The Cloud Hotel in Brockenhurst.
Volunteer drivers provided a much needed opportunity for passengers to get out and about, see some of the New Forest and meet other people.
These trips are particularly valuable as many passengers live on their own and can feel socially isolated.
Everyone had a lovely time, with one passenger saying it was “truly magical” and another saying ”when is the next trip? I can’t wait.”
Call & Go is a door to door weekly minibus service taking residents to their local supermarket.
It uses a fleet of accessible minibuses and the driver will carry shopping into client’s homes if needed.
Last year 9,650 passenger trips were taken.
Additional occasional trips include a pub lunch, visits to Garden Centres and Bingo and Chips.
