Go North Devon offers a wide range of services to help people get out and about

North Devon Council leader Des Brailey called in to meet Ring and Ride passengers at a coffee morning held in The Shopmobility Centre, Barnstaple.

Mr Brailey said: "I was very pleased to be invited to Go North Devon recently where I was given an insight to the tremendous work they do. I was fortunate to meet some of the clients who use the service to be able to get into and around Barnstaple."

Can Go North Devon help you get out and about in 2017? Services include the-door-to door minibus service known as Ring and Ride for essential shopping, the Out and About Club for outings and the Shopmobility service which provides the loan of wheelchairs and scooters along with volunteers who act as shopping escorts or sighted guides.
