    Copmanthorpe Communicare   

    • Run entirely by volunteers to provide transport for elderly and infirm residents to attend hospital and other appointments, as well as for local trips within Copmanthorpe.

    • Whatever your personal circumstances, if you have a clean driving licence and a little spare time, Copmanthorpe Communicare would love to hear from you. There is no regular commitment – all they ask is that you do what you can, when you can.  There is no obligation to help out every time you are asked, and the larger the pool of drivers the less there will be for each to do.

    • WITHOUT MORE DRIVERS COMMUNICARE WILL CEASE TO EXIST.

    • After so many years of providing a much valued service to our community this would be an enormous shame.

    • Please do not allow this to happen.  If you think you can help, please phone the Secretary, Diane Greenwell, on 778087
    • The minimum donation for the service is £2.50 within the village, £7.50 for journeys to York hospital and £5.50 for other journeys.
        Veterinary Service  

        • The Minster Veterinary Practice has a surgery in Back Lane, close to the Youth Club just off School Lane.
        • Open Monday to Friday and Saturday morning
        • To make an appointment call: 0771 504 4433
