Shopping

WE ARE CURRENTLY CONTACTING MEMBERS TO SEE IF THEY WOULD LIKE TO RECOMMENCE SHOPPING TRIPS. WE PLAN TO RESTART THE SERVICE ON WEDNESDAY 8TH JULY WITH A WEEKLY SERVICE FOR ALL AREAS. STRICT RULES WILL BE IN FORCE TO MINIMISE RISKS FROM COVID-19 – SOCIAL DISTANCING WILL BE MAINTAINED AND FACE COVERINGS WILL HAVE TO BE WORN. BUS CAPACITIES WILL BE LIMITED SO THERE MAY BE A TEMPORARY INCREASE IN THE COST TO MEMBERS. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, PLEASE CONTACT THE OFFICE

Shopping

We run weekly shopping services from Backwell, Clevedon, Failand, Long Ashton, Nailsea, Pill, Portishead, Winford and the surrounding districts. We pick you up from home and take you to your local shops with the return journey about one-and-a-half to two hours later. Passengers who live in Backwell, Failand, Long Ashton and Winford go to Nailsea.

We do not accompany you whilst you shop, but the driver and/or passenger assistant will safely store your shopping on the bus and will carry it to your front door if required. If you use a shopping trolley or a folding walker, this is not usually a problem, but please let the office know.

Once you are given a place on a shopping run, we will collect you at the same time on the same day each week unless you tell us otherwise. If you do not wish to travel or cannot come for any reason, please telephone the office to let us know; you may leave a message on our answering machine when the office is closed.

If you would like to use our shopping service or have any questions, please telephone the office on 01275 855552. On occasions, a shopping service may not have any places available in which case we will take your details and let you know when a place becomes available.

All timings are approximate and we ask you to be ready ten minutes before your allotted time.

To use our shopping service you will need to become a member of Nailsea & District Community Transport; this costs £12.00 per year. You will also be charged a fare on each occasion you use our service which is payable to the driver on the day of travel. Membership forms are available from the office.
