SNVB minibus for hire to village groups

South Northants Community Minibus provides a service to local charities, community groups, parishes and schools across South Northamptonshire. We offer a 16 seater minibus which is regularly safety checked and driven by fully trained, friendly and helpful drivers. The minibus is available to hire seven days a week. More »

Our aim is to provide affordable transport allowing members to access events, activities and experiences which are important to them, which they would otherwise struggle to go to together.

On a weekly basis we take folk on shorter local trips, for example to lunch clubs, meetings, inter-school activities and to local charities to volunteer. We also do longer distance trips including visits to the theatre, gardens, museums and exhibitions.

We believe that folk having access to affordable community transport is becoming ever more important in these times of diminished public transport. We want to ensure that people don't become isolated in rural communities and are able to enjoy companionship and life enhancing opportunities within South Northants and beyond.

If you would like to find out how to become a member and benefit from this scheme, it's free to register and we offer a 10% discount on your first booking. You can find more information on our website or email jeanette@snvb.org.uk or call 01327 358070 » Less

Change to Womens Club Programme for February

Pippa Newman, from the Coventry Building Society will talk to us about fraud, scams and security. Fraud continues to be a problem for consumers and the banking industry. Fraud schemes are constantly evolving and organisations need to keep up with these changes. For the banking industry this can be a challenging task. There are many fraud schemes including card not present (cnp), lost / stolen cards, account takeover, vishing and telephone scams to name but a few. More »

Pippa is going to give us tips on security and how to avoid scams. It promises to be both interesting and extremely useful.

Look forward to seeing you and any friends or family you would like to bring along that might benefit from this sort of knowledge.

Members - Free Guests - £2

"Mistaking the genuine for a scam is nowhere as bad as mistaking a scam as genuine ". So please make sure you come along to our February meeting on Wednesday 19th February, doors open from 7.15 pm and bring a guest.

Please note change from the published programme... hopefully we will be able to reschedule Waitrose. » Less
