16 December, 2008

"This new service will be welcomed by the greater Caledon area. It is a crucial and beneficial service for everyone, in particular the elderly who rely on such services.

"I would like to take this opportunity to welcome this pilot project and to encourage those who live in the rural area of Caledon, particularly those who are on a low income, pensioners, and those with disabilities, to avail of this free service.

"It is a free bus with wheelchair accessibility, which will run once a week on a Thursday, with pick up commencing at 10am and returning approximately at 2.30pm. Residents can be collected at their homes and returned home again with their shopping."

"As this is a new service anybody wishing to get more information should contact Dungannon & District Community Transport on 028 877 29714.ENDS
