Cyndie Gould updated the developments of the wheelchair accessible car donated to our community by the Laffan family in Christine’s memory.  The plan still is for the car to be owned and run by the Surrey Hills CLT offering journeys for only wheelchair users and only for medical appointments.  Eventually the wheelchair accessible car will be available for friends and family use as well.  If anyone in a wheelchair needs a lift for a medical appointment, please ring Cyndie on 01306 731224 and leave a message.
