Clifton Bus Service

In response to the announcement that Stagecoach will be terminating the current bus service from Clifton from January, the parish council has made telephone calls this morning.
We can confirm that the County Council, who subsidise the bus service, are in talks with Stagecoach. They, in turn, are in talks with Arriva about extending the X84 service to Clifton. This is a process that will be clarified in approximately two weeks.
The Parish Council will keep residents informed of further progress.
