Dan Rogerson visited the Devon Wheels 2 Work scheme alongside councillors and users of the service.

THE Minister for Rural Affairs has paid a visit to Holsworthy to take a look at the Devon Wheels 2 Work scheme.

MP Dan Rogerson visited the organisation’s new home which helps people access work, education and training by providing subsidised scooter and motorcycle rental.

Mr Rogerson said: “My visit to Devon has given me the opportunity to hear about the vital services Wheels 2 Work provides to the local community and also talk to customers benefiting from the service - it is innovative ideas like these that will help create a fairer society and build a stronger rural economy.”

Max Jowett, chief executive of Devon Wheels 2 Works, said he was pleased that Mr Rogerson MP had chosen to come to Holsworthy.

He added: “Devon Wheels 2 Work is recognised as a national example of good practice both for social enterprises and Wheels 2 Work schemes, and we are keen to share our experience with the minister.”
