Vehicle problems caused temporary glitch.

Services provided by not-for-profit community group Otter Rotters were temporarily disrupted after one of its vehicles was involved in a collision.

Mandy Jennings, a director of the group, says a second vehicle developed a problem, but that all rounds are now running to schedule.

She told the Midweek Herald: “An Otter Rotters vehicle was involved in a collision and has been awaiting repairs.

“A second vehicle developed a problem which has now been resolved.

“Unfortunately this resulted in a short disruption to a couple of rounds, but all rounds are running to schedule.”

Otter Rotters is a community group and relies on the support of volunteers.

Mrs Jennings said: “We would like to publicise the opportunity to volunteer for Otter Rotters - we would welcome enquiries from anybody wishing to volunteer. There are plenty opportunities in a range of roles, including drivers and loaders.

“We would especially welcome young volunteers who would like to gain some work experience or wishing to gain volunteer credits for their college applications.

“We have a friendly team and the garden scheme users often give the team great support including offering cups of tea and homemade cake.” Full training and support is provided.
