A Care Committee was set up in Yarnton in 1974 ‘to give help wherever it is needed to residents’ and over the years many have benefited, in one way or another, from it.
The services currently on offer are:
Lunch Club - See separate entry
Shopping Bus - A fortnightly service to Kidlington on Tuesday mornings in a minibus driven by volunteers. The cost is £2. Any offers to drive either regularly or just occasionally would also be gratefully received. Shopping Transport Organiser Fred Jones: Tel: 01865 373871
Hospital transport - In an emergency and if no other transport is available, we will try and arrange for a volunteer driver. The committee is very anxious to recruit more volunteer drivers. To volunteer help or to use these services contact Hospital Transport Organiser Mick Teeling on 01865 376801
The committee tries to keep up-to-date with services offered by the County and District Councils and organisations such as Age Concern. so if you are uncertain where to get the help you need, contact the Care Committee.
