Community First New Forest’s Better Lives service is giving residents the chance to join the service at half price. For the first year only, membership is £15 per annum for the first 200 members.
Offering a friendly and tailor-made service, Better Lives arranges vetted, reliable and professional tradesmen to carry out work at your convenience and will manage the payment for you, giving you peace of mind. Better Lives uses competitively priced local handymen, decorators and gardeners and makes sure that all jobs are planned and booked at a convenient time for you. There is no call-out charge and no travel time charged to and from jobs.
Members can also enjoy the travel club. The travel club gives you the opportunity to get out and about, meet new friends and enjoy the New Forest. You are picked up and delivered back to your front door, with no need to access public transport.
A group who recently went out on a boat trip said, ”The volunteers on the Alison MacGregor were very helpful, keeping us warm with blankets and making us cups of tea. Despite the rain, we had a really lovely time chatting and enjoying the commentary on the boats on Southampton Water.”
The fleet of minibuses have low level easy access side steps and are equipped with tail lifts to make it easier for those using wheelchairs or mobility scooters. All drivers are MIDAS trained and police checked and thoroughly enjoy taking members on trips and outings. Recent trips have included local historical houses and gardens, afternoon teas, historic railways, including the Watercress Line, and a host of other destinations. Christmas and theatre trips are now being planned so join now and don’t be left behind.
