THE sky’s the limit for disabled people in Blyth after the town’s disability forum took delivery of a new minbus.

The Variety Club of Great Britain handed over one of its accessible 17-seater buses to Blyth Valley Disabled Forum earlier this month.

The forum’s chairman Dick Simmons said: “We are delighted to be able to extend our projects, activities and community transport to our younger groups of disabled people, giving them even more opportunities.”

Any organisation or group in need of transport is asked to call the forum on (01670) 364657, as the organisation’s old vehicle is now no longer required.
