The Where2Today scheme has been hugely successful and also involves volunteers using their own cars in return for expenses to provide better transport links in the community.

A long running and well-used community transport scheme is appealing for drivers to return as volunteers after struggling to recruit in the Badenoch area in particular.

The Badenoch and Strathspey Community Transport Company based in Aviemore hopes that it can attract more volunteers as it looks to get back on track after the Covid restrictions.

BASTC development manager Maggie Lawson said: "Due to Government guidelines we had been unable to operate our community car scheme for some time.

"Now things have opened up again and we are keen to see that our most vulnerable people are able to access services they require.

"Many of these are health appointments which are critical for people.

"We desperately need drivers to support the scheme in Kingussie and Newtonmore.

"Volunteer driving can be so enjoyable.

"It enables folk to meet people and make new friends, and it provides a sense of satisfaction by helping others in your own community."

Volunteers use their own cars and receive expenses in return.

• Anyone who can give a couple of hours a month as a volunteer driver should contact the "Where2Today" office on 01479 810004 or email
