WEST WORCESTERSHIRE MP Harriett Baldwin joined residents from Tenbury Wells to celebrate a new community transport minibus.
The MP was invited to formally unveil the bus which was funded from a bid to the Department for Transport to support community transport schemes.
Mrs Baldwin has been a long-term supporter of the Tenbury Transport Trust and its volunteers and formally backed the bid for the new minibus.
She said: “I have helped to support Tenbury Transport Trust for many years in any way I can and I was delighted when I was told that the bid for Government funding has been successful.
“I want to formally thank all the many volunteers who help to transport people living in and around Tenbury.
“The service reaches some remote outlying villages with a lifeline.
“We are blessed to live in a beautiful part of the country but sometimes rural areas miss out when it comes to public transport.
“Tenbury Transport Trust is a great organisation for helping people who need help the most.”
