Ottery & District Help Scheme
The help scheme is available to help people get to and from doctors' surgeries, dentists, opticians, hospitals etc. Volunteer drivers from the area have been vetted by the scheme and will pick you up from your door and take you to and from your appointment. A charge is normally made for this service, although the cost is not a bar to users. The round trip fare to/from Ottery St Mary for residents of Newton Poppleford is £10 per person. Different charges are made for further destinations.

If you need a car and driver please book in advance by calling 01404 816700.

The scheme is always looking for more drivers! So if you are willing to help out occasionally please call Jane on 01404 816700. Drivers will be reimbursed for fuel costs.

Ring & Ride
The ring and ride service is available to residents of the parish. The minibus will collect you from your home and take you to Tesco at Exmouth to do your shopping, bringing you home afterwards. The shopping trips take place on Tuesdays collecting passengers at about 11.30am, returning home at about 1.30pm. Ring & Ride is a registered charity and charges £3.60 for a single or return journey.

Please click here for the website of the Ring & Ride Service, where you can also read full details of the Community Bus Service.
