Can you “Take Me Too!”? Drivers wanted for new lift share project

Do you ever make a journey with empty seats in your car?  Do you care about making Pembrokeshire a friendlier, better connected place to live?  A local community transport charity is looking for 500 drivers to join its new community lift sharing network, Take Me Too!, which is set to launch in Pembrokeshire this summer.  This exciting new project will allow drivers to offer spare seats in their car in return for a contribution towards expenses and the “feel good factor” of helping people in their community who would otherwise struggle to make their journey.  Sharing journeys is also a greener way to travel, so you’ll be doing the planet a favour too! Find out more about Take Me Too!

 

P am Pobl / P is for People

The Welsh Senate of Older People has recently re-launched its P is for People campaign for public toilets. They are hoping to collect as many responses to their questionnaire as possible in order to produce a report for Welsh Government and local authorities.  As public toilets are an issue for all ages – and particularly in Solva given the recent closures – the Welsh Senate would like to collect responses from people of all ages. Here is the link to the survey https://www.c3sc.org.uk/news/6039-welsh-senate-of-older-people-s-p-is-for-people-campaign.
