Broadband Service Questionnaire:

As we know, the Broadband service in the area is variable and in some cases non-existent.

An independent communications consultant has devised a series of questions to ascertain the needs of the local community with a view to possibly offering superior alternatives – which may potentially be more cost effective.

Stowey Shuttle

We are delighted to announce that the Stowey Shuttle car sharing scheme went live on Monday 3rd October.

This is a local community volunteer led car based travel scheme called the Stowey Shuttle. It will be operated by volunteer drivers driving their own vehicles. It is designed to help people who have difficulty using public transport or who must travel to or from locations where there is no public transport available.

The types of journey this scheme is designed to support are Primarily health and care-related appointments and if we have the capacity things such as shopping in town.

It is available to residents in the Parishes of Nether and Over Stowey who need to make journeys in the local area.

The cost to the passenger is worked out on miles travelled and they will be told this before completing their booking. The drivers offer their time freely and in return receive expenses in respect of the mileage they incur.

We require at least 48 hours notice to set up the lifts.

From 3rd October the number to call is 07943923742
