A community project needs businesses to donate parking spaces its much-used minibuses.

Community Wheels, a part of Community Action Dacorum (CAD), based in High Street, Hemel Hempstead, has a fleet of 12 minibuses which are always on the road, used by elderly people, scout groups and other organisations.

“We need spaces for three minibuses to park up,” said Deborah Fogden, community transport researcher at CAD.

“It would also be nice to have other spaces so we could give other companies an occasional break from hosting.”

Donated parking spaces save Community Wheels money, which allows it to keep the costs of hiring as low as possible.

Businesses can also sponsor the minibuses and have their logos seen on them as they zip around the borough.

“The Box Moor Trust minibus that people see around town is one of ours. It’s a great advert to have roaming around,” said Deborah.

Anyone who wants to help or to get more information should call Deborah on 01442 253935.
