Visit by the High Sherrifof North Yorkshire Venetia Wrigley, North Yorkshire's High Sherrif,  joined Dial A Ride for a day and said...."Last week, I spent a great afternoon with the Scarborough Dial a Ride. This valuable organisation is run by Julie Banks, ably assisted by Tim Lawson and Maria Hunter in the office plus a beautiful black cat who lies in a box on the desk! An amazing trip and a total eye opener. I learnt on my return that Dial a Ride is very short of volunteers - their numbers have dropped from 50 to 30 since the beginning of COVID so they are looking for volunteer drivers. I could not think of a nicer organisation to drive for!"  More can be found on Instagram here November 2021
