Group hoping to help tackle isolation in Lichfield and Burntwood through cycling project

A local group is hoping to help isolated members of the community to get out and experience – and remember -the joy of cycling.

Community groups have been invited to take a ride in the rickshaw style vehicle, to see whether there is any appetite for a ride service to be offered locally.
