Traffic in Villages – toolkit

Highways Information:

The Four Villages: LINK Scheme is a voluntary group which offers transport and good neighbour services to local people in need – perhaps because they are elderly, or single parents or perhaps temporarily in need because of illness, or, in fact for any person with a need for our support. These essential services provide a safety net for those unable to access services in other ways. It is a registered Charity and operates in line with Charity Commission Guidelines.

The Management Committee (also all volunteers) provide oversight and governance on the activities in line with the Objects of the Charity. Transport and good neighbour tasks are carried out by volunteers who liaise on a day to day basis with the duty Co-ordinator. The Management Committee work with Community First’s Link project team to stay updated and to network with other schemes which operate throughout the county.

Financially The Four Villages Link scheme is healthy with considerable reserves.

While there is a constant need for new volunteers to join us, either in the capacity of volunteer drivers or able to undertake good neighbour tasks or to act as Co-ordinators, we now have an URGENT need to secure more individuals willing to volunteer as Committee Members. At our forthcoming AGM both the Chair and Secretary will stand down in line with our Constitution document and in the near future other Committee members may also “retire”. It is vital we recruit new Committee members to allow the valuable work our volunteers carry out in our community can continue as now.

The roles are not onerous nor overly time demanding. There is a regular “formal” quarterly meeting plus one AGM and for most Committee members a few “ad hoc” hours each month on Committee work.

Please consider if you are able to help our Community, either by becoming a Committee member or being co-opted for a time and if you are interested to find out more contact The Four Villages Link on 07852 256939 and we’ll put you in touch with a member of the Management Committee who will be happy to tell you more on what’s required.

The Erlestoke area is shown in the image below, with footpaths in purple, bridleways in green and byways in brown. I believe motorised vehicles are allowed on byways but not on bridleways or footpaths
