New vehicle announcement

Kirsty Lawrence's picture

We are pleased to be able to announce the paperwork has finally been completed on our new vehicles.
After a discussion earlier this year around diversifying our fleet we have chosen to add two of these new vehicles to begin with. One to be based north of the tyne and another south of it. We have been working hard behind the scenes to expand into new bases ahead of the additions joining us. 
Due to their capabilities we have a new training program in place too. 
Not only will they expand our fleet but also accommodate volunteers who may be shorter in stature.
