Voluntary groups invited to share transport woes
Transport can be a real challenge in rural areas making everyday activities, like getting to the doctor, difficult. But help is at hand at a free event at Fakenham Racecourse for members of voluntary groups to find out what can be done to make it easier to access services.

But help is at hand at a free event at Fakenham Racecourse for members of voluntary groups to find out what can be done to make it easier to access services.
Voluntary Norfolk is holding a Going The Extra Mile event on Thursday, February 11 in the Prince of Wales Stand for anyone involved in a voluntary or community group whose members have difficulties with transport.
Speakers will include Norman Rides from the Community Transport Association, Norfolk County Council and NHS Norfolk setting out some of the steps these organisations take to make their services accessible in rural areas.
Barry Langley, chair of the local community transport forum, will outline the actions happening locally and there will be workshops to help decide on the next steps.
The event is free, but places need to be booked in advance by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01263 516414.
