Youth & Community

  “Pembroke Street Management Team loaned the bus out to the Welcome Hall on Christmas Day for several years.

   We were able to offer a special festive day, not only to local residents but city wide too as we could offer transport.

   The people who attended the Christmas lunch festivities would have been on their own if it wasn’t for Pembroke Street Team and the minibus.”

Community Minibus
