General Description

Registered Charity 1167304

In 1996, Help the Aged gave the village of Holt a new Peugeot 15-seater minibus, with wheelchair lift, in memory of Mrs Ruby Beaven, who had left them a substantial bequest.

A Committee was established to run this facility which is now used by many local organisations: pre-school groups, Firlawn Nursing Home, primary schools, youth clubs, walking groups, Holt Morris, Holt Bowls Club, other bus groups, Churches, and the HCB Excursions Group. Plus a weekly bus service to and from the Village Hall to service the Wednesday Luncheon Club and to Chippenham on Fridays.

The current 17-seater Peugeot Boxer minibus is the fifth vehicle to have been operated by the group.

The committee is supported by a happy band of volunteer drivers and passenger assistants who undergo regular training to ensure their skills are more than sufficient to provide a safe and comfortable service: some of whom can be seen in the accompanying photograph enjoying one of their recent training events.

Trips/days out

Excursions offered regularly to a wide variety of interesting locations are advertised in the Holt Village Magazine.

Anyone from Holt and the surrounding area can also book an excursion on our 16 passenger wheelchair accessible minibus.

Costs vary depending on the excursion (although prices will not exceed the advertised price) but Bus Passes cannot be accepted.

Bletchley Park was a recent destination which proved to be a cracking day out!

Group transport services – with driver

Private hirers wishing to use the Holt Community Bus are usually expected to find their own driver. If a driver is required, one of our volunteer drivers may be available but this cannot be guaranteed. Holt Community Bus does run excursions which include the services of a driver.

(see Trips/days out for more information)
