Transport to COVID 19 vaccine locations
All Together In Charlbury (ATIC) is again looking at how it can help Charlbury residents who have been called for a COVID vaccine at a location to which they need private transport. If you are in this position and cannot call on a family member or friend to get you to your vaccine, call our usual call centre number 01993 776277 (9.00 to 1.00 Mon-Fri or leave an answerphone message) and we will see what we can do. Please give us as much notice of a request, as you can (but we know that you can only do this when you have been contacted yourself!).
We have worked hard to set up appropriate COVID19-safe (Hands, Face, Space) systems and procedures which we need drivers and passengers to follow and there is a reasonable mileage charge of 45p per mile (hardship funding available).
Our call centre number again is 01993 776277 – this will get you to Volunteer Link-Up staff who kindly help us deal with requests.
For those who will be driving themselves to Carterton Health Centre, ATIC suggests that the best route is to go via Burford. (As you may know, the road to Witney via Finstock railway bridge is closed until 22 March).)
Go through Burford across the bridge from the A361 and up to the main road roundabout. Turn Left onto the A40 towards Witney and Oxford. Then almost immediately turn Right onto the B4020 signposted Carterton, RAF Brize Norton and Burford Garden Company.
On the B4020 go past the Burford Garden Company and carry on down the B4020 into Carterton. Carry straight along the road towards Carterton town centre. You will come to traffic lights – go straight across towards the town centre (crossing Upavon Way). Continue straight down the road to the next set of traffic lights in the town centre. Turn Right into Alvescot Road. The Health Centre is on the right just past the Library. (The second Original Factory Shop building is opposite.)
If you would like an annotated map of the town centre (containing these directions) to complement the map provided by the Charlbury Medical Centre, you can download one from the ATIC page in the Community section of this website (Charity and World) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. There are also copies at Cornerstone at the Corner House.
