Covid-19 Vaccine Transport Support

Transport to Covid-19 vaccination appointments

If you're a Derbyshire resident struggling to get to your COVID-19 vaccination appointment then you can now book a free return journey to help you attend.

If you don't have your own transport, and you can't use public transport, then Derbyshire County Council's Active Travel team can help you with door to door transport to and from your vaccination appointment.

The parent or carer of the person attending the vaccination clinic can also travel for free. For example if you're the parent of a child aged 12 to 15, or a carer for the person being vaccinated.

You can contact the Community Response Unit who can help you to book your journey.

Please contact them at least 3 working days before your vaccination appointment to allow sufficient time to book your transport.

You can call the Community Response Unit on 01629 535091.

New Mills

An Introduction

New Mills lies where the rivers Sett and Goyt join to become one of the principal tributaries of the River Mersey. The rivers flow through the town in a spectacular gorge, the Torrs, home to the Millennium Walkway. The Peak Forest Canal also passes through the town with a well established marina at Newtown. Much of the district is rural with large parts in agriculture mainly cattle and sheep.

Areas around Rowarth and Ollersett Moor are within the Peak District National Park with excellent footpath links and some open access land. Its rural hinterland and gateway to the Peak District, and proximity to the Manchester conurbation makes New Mills a popular place for walkers. The town is particularly well connected by rail to Manchester, Stockport and Sheffield.

Considerable industrial activity still takes place in the New Mills area, with companies involved in confectionery, engineering, quarrying, haulage, design and IT development.

New Mills was designated High peak's first Fairtrade town in 2006. The town centre has a wide range of independent specialist shops, indoor and outdoor markets and professional services. Bus and rail services link the town centre with outlying areas and surrounding villages.
