Today we had a V.I.P (Very Important Passenger) on our regular Thursday Heathfield Shopping Bus – Huw Merriman MP, together with his PA, Frances, and work experience student, Ethan.
Huw recently visited us in March to hand over the keys of our brand new, government funded minibus, and promised us he would be back – he didn’t disappoint us!
Huw is a keen supporter of our organisation, and was delighted to learn more about the services we provide to the older members of our community, and enjoyed talking to the passengers as he accompanied them on their weekly trip to the local shops. Huw also proved to be a dab hand with the trolleys!
We shall look forward to seeing Huw again soon when he hopes to attend one of the Country Lunches at Punnetts Town Village Hall – who knows, we may even persuade him to wear an apron!
