Blewbury Flying Squad
Blewbury Flying Squad is made up of local volunteers who are willing to drive Blewbury residents to medical appointments (including dental, optician and chiropody). Please note that we need as much notice as possible to arrange a driver, and that we suggest a modest contribution to expenses for each trip. How to Book - Call the number below. If no one is available to answer, you will hear a message which starts – ‘Hello, this is the Blewbury Flying Squad phone ...’. Wait for the beep at the end of the message and give your name and telephone number and you will be phoned back as soon as possible. Please speak clearly. Please note: We cannot provide transport to the Horton Hospital in Banbury.

This bus does a single return trip from Didcot via Blewbury and the villages to Wallingford on Fridays, giving you just over 2 hours there. It follows the route used by the old 131, arriving in Blewbury via Bessels Lea at 10:20 and going down Bessels Lea and up South Street to the Load of Mischief; you can hail it any point along the route. It returns in the opposite direction, arriving at the Load of Mischief at 13:47. It is an Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) minibus that is hired by DVTG. DVTG is not a transport company, so regulations mean that to use this bus you must be a DVTG Bus member. Joining is free: you can join using the contact details below, or by signing up when you buy tickets (£1.75 each way/£3.50 return) at Savages or the Post Office. If you have already signed up, tickets may be bought on the bus.
