Attleborough special school receives new minibus

Trips to the seaside or Center Parcs holiday resort will not be such a chore for staff and pupils at a special school after the donation of a new minibus.

The 16-seater Ford Transit bus, costing about �40,000, was officially unveiled by the Bishop of Norwich the Rt Rev Graham James, at Chapel Road School in Attleborough yesterday after being bought with donations from the Lords Taverners charity cricket club, the Friends of Chapel Road school fundraising group and Potters Leisure Resort at Hopton.

Deborah Miller, one of the school's administrators, said the new bus was in addition to the existing eight-year-old Variety Club bus.

Pupils aged between three and 19 were also taken on pleasure trips to such places as the Hippodrome Circus in Great Yarmouth and Riding for the Disabled at East Harling.
