Bus hire service from January

BUS HIRE SERVICE FROM JANUARY 2019

Elford and Edingale Parish Councils have reviewed the service they have contributed to (since the County Council withdrew their subsidies in April 2018) for residents who do not have transport to Tamworth to do their shopping and attend appointments. They recognise how important the service is to residents and are keen to do all they can to maintain it.

Parish Councils have to work within the constraints of the precept and due to the projected cost to council tax payers they have decided to continue to support the bus hire service but to reduce the frequency to one day per week.

The bus will run on Fridays at 9.30 from the Social Club and return from Tamworth (Corporation Street) at 13.15.

Please continue to support this service so that it can continue.
