A more spacious and senior-friendly minibus would also help Lynn. She's worked at our Weavery for years, and makes beautiful rugs. But it's a couple of miles away, and climbing into our old minibus is now very difficult for her.

- Updating and replacing ageing transport, if we're fortunate to raise sufficient funds
Please will you help? We have no way to find new 'wheels' for Ashfield House or Oaklands except through the generosity of our friends.
