Did you know that by hiring our facilities you are also supporting our charitable work in the local community?
The YMCA Bournemouth mini bus is available for social purposes and can be picked up from St Christopher’s Church in Southbourne.
Details and Cost:
- 17 person capacity (including driver’s seat)
- £50 per day or £20 per hour for evening hire (plus fuel)
A driver must be ‘named’ and this person must fulfil the following requirements:
- Unless the minibus is being used to transport children/young people or for commercial purposes, anyone awarded their driving licence prior to 1 January 1997 is likely to be able to drive the minibus without additional qualifications or permits. People awarded their licences after this date will probably need a ‘PCV licence’. However, the requirements are complicated so please read our Driver Requirements leaflet carefully. Please call us if you have questions.
- The Driver Safety Checklist must be completed.
- A scan or photocopy of the named driver’s driving licence (photo card only) will be required.
- We also need access to your driving licence details via the ‘share my driving licence’ website at gov.uk/view-driving-licence. Once the process is completed you’ll be given a ‘Check code’ to send to us.
The minibus is based in the car park at St Christopher’s Church, Arnewood Road, Bournemouth BH6 5DW
