The Parish Council is investigating the demand for a replacement Community Bus Service in the village.

Villagers with limited access to private transport will be well aware that the Northamptonshire County Council’s “County Connect” bus service (above) has been withdrawn. The Parish Council is actively considering the need for a community bus service to replace it. The Council have been advised that Greatworth Parish Council and Helmdon Parish Council have partnered to provide a free weekly replacement bus service to its residents. This is costing a total of £90 per week to run, but is reportedly well used. The Parish Council is considering whether Sulgrave might run a similar scheme or join the Helmdon/Greatworth scheme. However, questions were raised at a recent Parish Council meeting as to whether the need exists in the village. The Council resolved to seek further information on the need for a replacement bus service in the village.

To this end you are invited to advise the Parish Council as to your views.
