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.
Would you be willing to help?
Q. What does BASH mean?

can spare some time to help.

spare the time
