    This episode offers a fascinating insight into the challenges which are facing community transport services up and down the country.  We welcome our special guest, Celia Arthur, the transport manager for Bluwave Community Transport (www.bluwave.org.uk), and we had a call to discuss the importance and value the role volunteer drivers play in their local community and how you too can become a volunteer driver.  Bluwave Community Transport are particularly busy and are always on the lookout for more volunteers and drivers.
