Churchill and Langford Minibus


(Reg. Charity 1975)

The Churchill and Langford Minibus Society has two minibuses providing Community transport for all the residents living in the Shipham Parish who join the Society.  The Parish Council supports the Society and the benefits it brings to those who 
use the minibuses.

During the week the minibus provides scheduled trips to shops, banks, opticians etc in Weston and other towns in North Somerset, Bristol and Bath.  In addition the members of the Society benefit from a whole range of unscheduled trips to the coast, pub lunches, cinema, theatre and lots more.  In 2018 the Society ran over 50 unscheduled trips.

Both minibuses are in great demand and the Society urgently needs to find lots more volunteer drivers in order that we can meet all the transport requests.  If you are able to provide some time each month or every other month then please contact the Chairman Malcolm Letts to discuss becoming a driver (and the training we provide) or organiser on 01934 852314, or for further details regarding using the minibuses contact the Booking secretary Laura Batt on 01934 863679.
