VOLUNTEER minibus drivers are needed in Bishop's Waltham.
A post on the Bishop's Waltham What's On Facebook page said: "Please think about volunteering to drive the Bishop's Waltham minibus.  We are very fortunate to have this service available in Bishop's Waltham but without more drivers, we risk losing it.
"Just a few extra drivers are needed to keep this running, driving the elderly to lunch clubs and adults with learning difficulties to local places of interest, and many other really worthwhile groups and events.
"Hours to suit you, and be part of a great team working to keep our community thriving and supported."
