New bus service

FAIRFORD Town Council is subsidising a special community bus service every Wednesday to bring people into Fairford from the villages to enjoy what is on offer on Market Day.

The Community Connexions bus company will run every Wednesday for six months to trial the popularity of the service.

There are two routes, each running on alternate weeks.

The first one is the Fairford Market South route picking up passengers from their homes in Fairford, Horcott, Whelford, Kempsford, RAF Fairford main gate, Meysey Hampton and Greenacres mobile home park starting on August 9 and then every alternate Wednesday. Passengers will be picked up at 9am and returned home at 12pm.

The Fairford Market North route will start a week later on August 16 and will be to Southrop, Eastleach, Hatherop, Coln St Aldwyns and Quenington.

If you would like to book your place on either of these routes, which cost £1 each way, please phone 0345 680 5029.

This is a trial and if not used will be cancelled.
