In partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council
Sawtry Car Scheme Update - 27/08/20
Following the suspension due to the COVID-19 lockdown, a restricted service will operate from Monday 7th September 2020 to convey clients to and from medical appointments only (that is to Hospital, Doctors, Opticians and Dentists). Please abide by the following guidelines to minimise the risk to both passengers and drivers:
Please download the new Scheme guidelines for more information.
While every care is taken to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19, the risk cannot be completely removed and any journeys undertaken are done so at the individuals’ own risk.

If you experience difficulties with getting out and about, such as travelling to appointments or visiting friends and family, the Sawtry Car Scheme may be able to help.
The Sawtry Car Scheme is volunteer-led and for people who have difficulties getting to or using public transport. Those who do not have access to a car or any other means of transport can request a lift.
The scheme can be used for attending appointments, for example medical appointments with the GP, chiropodist, opticians; attending hospital appointments including Peterborough, Hinchingbrooke, Papworth and Addenbrooke's hospitals; and visiting friends and family in the area. Journeys to personal appointments and meetings, plus accessing public services, could be undertaken.
A number of users have commented on how useful and valuable the scheme is to them. There is a charge for this service to help the volunteers cover the cost of fuel and motoring costs. To find out more, please contact us, download a leaflet for more details or contact the Scheme Co-ordinator on 07810 476979 and leave a message.
