Keighley Community Tran-sport has bought its first full-size minibus for several years.

The 17-seater replaces a bus that has carried people from hundreds of groups during the past 12 years.

The charity bought a new 11-seater vehicle last year to cater for smaller organisations, such as sports clubs and children’s groups.

Members of many of the user groups attended Keighley Community Transport’s annual meeting last week.

Officers elected included chairman Gary Pedley, treasurer John Philip and vice-chairman Robert Gould.

Mary Beanland, the co-ordinator, said the charity was healthy but there was always a need for volunteer drivers.

Anyone with a D1 driving licence should contact Mary on (01535) 609278.
