Day trips are to restart on 10th June with trips to the Mall at Cribbs Causeway, Wells Market, Salt & Malt at Chew Valley Lake and Cadbury Garden Centre planned for June.

See the full programme on the Trips page.

8th January – Lockdown Again!

Whilst we are in lockdown again, we are still providing a service to our members as follows:

  • Shopping trips from all areas. (The timetable may need amendment to meet a reduction in passenger numbers, but the office will be in touch with revised arrangements).
  • Dial-a-Rides – book with the office.
  • Nailsea Availables Car Scheme – book through your GP surgery.

2020

1st December – Nailsea Availables

In November, Nailsea Availables (the hospital car scheme serving Nailsea, Wraxall and Tickenham) amalgamated with N&DCT. Their volunteer drivers all became volunteers with N&DCT and their car scheme which had been paused during October and November, has re-started.

Users of the service will see no difference in the service provision and should continue to make transport requests to GP, hospital, dentist, optician and other health related appointments via their surgery as at present. This includes transport for coronavirus vaccinations.

Anyone who requires more specialised transport by one of our accessible minibuses should contact the office on 855552 to request a Dial-a-Ride.

26th November – Christmas Shut-down

We will be closed for a Christmas break from 25th December and re-open on 4th January 2021. (Normal shopping trips will be running on Christmas Eve subject to demand). We will open for one day during the break on Tuesday 29th December only when we will be offering a full shopping service for all our members. If you have not yet put your name down for this special shopping day please give the office a ring to ensure you are not disappointed.

23rd November – Christmas Draw

With 2020 being so challenging, we thought that some Christmas cheer would not go amiss for our members, so we will be entering all our members’ names into a Christmas raffle. First prize is a Christmas hamper and in addition there are lots of other goodies to win. If you are one of the lucky winners we will call you with the good news and arrange to deliver your prize to your house before Christmas.  Good luck in the draw.

23rd November – Email addresses

We have seen that more of our members are now using email. If you would like us to contact you in future by email rather than by letter, then please send an email to office@ndct.co.uk to confirm. Emailing our members will help us save on postage costs.

We will not disclose your email address to any other organisation in line with our privacy policies.

28th August – Prescription Deliveries End

Today is our last day of the Medical Delivery run. Over the lock down period and the months that have followed with your help of the Nailsea Covid-19 Group we have delivered a staggering 3,400  prescription across Nailsea and the surrounding areas.

It is no exaggeration to say that we really could not have done this without the help of every volunteer driver and passenger assistant and we are truly grateful for their support which has made a big difference to a large number of members of our community who have had to self-isolate.

The Trustees and staff at Nailsea & District Community Transport would like to say a very ‘BIG THANK YOU’ to everyone involved – you have all been truly amazing.

17th August – Day Trips to Restart

Plans are in hand to restart our Day Trips in September. members wikll all receive a list and should contact the office if interested.

8th July – Shopping Trips Restarted

Shopping Trips for all areas have restarted today. The service is limited at the moment due to restricted bus capacities in order to maintain the 1 metre + social distancing. More services will be put on to suit demand. If you are interested, please contact the office on 01275 855552
