Just the cup of tea for Carol
Carol Stubbs was the lucky winner of a fantastic Betty’s Taylors of Harrogate gift pack in our September prize draw, as a result of participating in the i-Travel York project. Carol talked to us about the difference i-Travel York has made to her life.
“The girl who came to talk to me was lovely and so helpful!” says Carol Stubbs, having been visited by an i-Travel York Adviser during the summer. “She gave me and my partner lots of information and advice on getting around York.”
Shortly after the home visit, I received a personalised pack including all the information we requested such as bus timetables and cycling routes, and a couple of pedometers to encourage us to do more walking”, Carol says. “I used to simply ride a bike at the gym but now my activities have just snowballed! I do things now that I never have before.”
Transdev’s Coastliner timetable was one of the most useful resources they received. “We discovered how easy it was to make journeys to other cities by bus – just yesterday we went to Scarborough!” “It was the best day” her partner, John adds.
“I couldn’t believe it when i-Travel York called me to say I had won the prize – the coffee will do for me and John will like the tea!”
With better mobility and more opportunities to get active, as a result of our visit, Carol is enthusiastic about the project continuing, urging us to “keep it up!”
