Volunteers are being sought to join a community car scheme in Dereham.
The town council has appealed for people who have a driver's licence and want to help others to get involved and help others make 'essential journeys', which include trips to hospitals, doctors' surgeries, dentists, opticians and chiropodists.
A small fare is payable by the passenger, which covers about half the costs of the scheme. The other half is made up by Dereham Town Council and Breckland Council.
A council spokesman said: "The community car scheme is up and running, however we are in need of more drivers to cover the volume of requests being received.
"If you think you may be able to help, please get in touch."
