New wheels are ready to roll

CLIENTS of Manning Valley and Area Community Transport in Gloucester can now travel in comfort and style like never before with the arrival of a new fleet vehicle.

The organisation yesterday unveiled a new Hyundai diesel station wagon capable of carrying up to four passengers to medical and social appointments or shopping expeditions.

Community transport has been servicing the Gloucester district for more than 25 years.

Its fleet of 21 vehicles covers an area of 10,000 square kilometres with offices in Tea Gardens, Wingham, Forster and Gloucester.

Community transport volunteers drive up to 85,000 trips per year.

The Gloucester office covers an area from Stroud north to Krambach and Taree and occasionally up to Port Macquarie. The new station wagon will complement the bus service the organisation already supplies to residents of Gloucester. 

The Manning Valley and Area Community Transport office on King St is open Tuesday to Friday from 9.30am to 2.30pm. 

The service is currently recruiting new volunteer drivers.

To volunteer contact Claudia Ferraro on 6558 2104.
