B.A.S.H.

Many people in Buntingford,especially the elderly, and 
others without access to a car, have great difficulty in
attending hospital appointments.    They are not helped
by the inadequacy of public transport to hospitals 
in Cambridge, Stevenage, Bishops Stortford, Harlow and 
Welwyn Garden City.    This is why B.A.S.H.volunteer
hospital drivers service was formed in 1973.
