Newnham Scouts run two buses: a 17-seater and an accessible 15-seater. They are available for loan to local Scout groups and other organisations with a Section 19 permit (UK and Scouting information). There is a mileage charge which includes all costs for fuel and insurance. Our box trailer can be towed by the 17-seater and can also be borrowed at £15/day. If it's not needed, you can collect the trailer the evening before you leave at no extra charge, to help with packing.
