The volunteer drivers are continuing to do a great job of taking
our service users to medical appointments locally and as far away
as Glasgow. While Covid numbers are still worrying we are not
providing drivers for social runs but this is being reviewed each
month at committee meetings.
the COVID situation we are continuing to help the elderly and
infirm, of any age, in our community with a restricted service
to comply with government policy.
The committee are meeting regularly, on Zoom, to ensure that the
group continues to run smoothly and 25 volunteer drivers are taking
people to medical appointments or doing shopping.
One casualty of the the present situation is that we cannot hold
our usual meetings with the drivers. These meetings give the volunteers
an opportunity to meet each other and exchange suggestions, concerns,
etc., and are particularlyvaluable for new volunteers.
On 27th September, 2019 a silver birch tree was planted in the
grounds of Loch Leven Health Centre in memory of Ann Munro who
sadly died in April this year. During torrential rain the tree
was planted by Jane and Ross, Ann's daughter and son with approximately
40 people looking on. Hopefully the tree will thrive, just as
KVG&ROS did during the 37 years that Ann was the co-ordinator.
tree planting was followed by a buffet lunch. Chairman Sandy Smith
thanked all the volunteer drivers and committee members. He also
thanked and presented flowers to Nesta Hogg who has retired from
driving after almost 20 years.
