If you have no car in your household and there is no suitable public transport available then perhaps we can help! We are the Framlingham and Woodbridge Community Car Scheme, covering Woodbridge and the surrounding villages. Perhaps you need to get to the doctors or the shops or to visit friends in hospital? Give us a call and we will try to help. If we aren’t in the office, leave your name and phone number on our answering machine, and we will respond within two working days. Our volunteer drivers use their own cars on a non-profit making basis. Passengers contribute on a mileage basis towards the cost of a journey and the current charges will be advised when you book. We are pleased to be supported by Suffolk County Council.

Do you know of any local groups or organisations that have not been listed here?

If so, please tell us and we will add the details.
