This is a simple idea that could possibly change someone's life.
It is a new idea for our local communities.
The Talking Bus provides a space for people to come together and make friends.
The Bus will travel to local communities, there will be a café on board, and weekly activities, including Bingo, Chess, light exercise classes and lots more. Local Businesses can advertise on the bus. Please can get in touch via Facebook for information.
I will be asking local businesses to get involved, I already have a hairdresser who is willing to provide a free hair cut for the Bingo Winners!
We will be providing a quiet place for people if they just need a listening ear.
There will always be someone on board who can sign post people if they require any support at home e.g. are you a struggling carer? Are you no longer able to access your local community?
My plan is to try out the bus of a weekend, as I work through the week. I have always wanted to run a café, with the Talking Bus Café I have a chance to do that and do what I love at the same time, talking to our communities, ensuring people have the support they need.
I need the funding to buy a bus and set up a café on board. The cafe will sell affordable tea and coffee, cakes and biscuits.
The bus can become part of the local community, we can work alongside health professionals promoting healthy living etc
This is not just a café on a bus, it is a community bus.
