About Harwich Connexions
Harwich Connexions comprises a group of three companies. Harwich Connexions Transport Co-operative Ltd (company registered number: 4715958) was founded in 2003. As a not for profit social enterprise our objectives are:
To provide transport services for the local community.
To engage in any business or trade which may seem to the Company directly or indirectly conducive to the interests or convenience of the Company's members.
To promote and encourage and assist in the development of other initiatives.
We established two associated organisations in 2008 to support an expanded range of community activities:
Harwich Connexions Community Trust: Our charity registered number: 6030659
Harwich Connexions Noah's Nursery: A not for profit company registered number: 6627681
Membership: As a community-based company, membership of Harwich Connexions Transport Co-operative Ltd is open to all. We have three categories of membership for users, staff and our supporters. Full membership is available on application from individuals and organisations that support the objectives of the company, irrespective of gender, race, religion or political views.
Our Directors: drawn from the three membership categories comprise the Transport Co-operative Management Board. Regular Board meetings are held relating to governance, policy, internal financial control and the strategic direction of the Company. Our Directors are volunteers, who give their time freely to support the needs of others and are not remunerated for this governance role. The elected team of Directors is:
Richard Colley (Chairman), Alan Baxter, Dale Cheesman, Phil Hartwell, Debbie Hill, Anna Lee, Derrick Osborne, Anna Rendell-Knights and Michael Wyatt.
Staff: The Harwich Connexions Group employs 43 staff to deliver our range of services - on the buses, in the office, at the 1912 Centre, the Enterprise Centre and at Noah's Nursery. It is company policy to recruit staff locally. Our staff team is vital to the success of the company and to the quality of our daily services.
Volunteers: The Company is indebted to our many volunteers, particularly our volunteer drivers who give their time freely to support the needs of others in the community.
Lots of opportunities exist for volunteering within the company; with the growth in the demand for our services we are on the lookout for additional volunteer Drivers subject to licence checks and driving training and assessment. Please contact us if you would like to help us with our work in the community.
