County Club Chairman Mr David Brindle and Secretary Steve Broadbent take delivery of the

new minibus in July 2010


July 2010: The County Sports & Social Club are pleased to announce the purchase of a brand new 24,000 17 Seat Ford Transit Minibus.  This is the first time the Club have owned their own transport and with the New Year in sight this could not be a better time for members across the force to think about organising a group activity for members of their office, department, Section or Division.


Says County Club secretary Steve, "We have been saving up for this facility for some years now. The 'rainy day' has now come and this purchase is an excellent way to use Club funds. The bus can be used by any member of the Club across the force, free of charge. It has to be a great way to assist our staff in organising group social activities and would inevitably add to raising morale and team camaraderie among our colleagues".  


The bus will also be used to transport players to annual Police Sport UK events. This will save a around 5000 a year on the rental of commercial hire cars and buses. So the new minibus has to be a 'win win' facility!


Briefly the conditions and terms of use are as follows:-
