Brandon Community Bus

 

As you are no doubt aware a campaign to resurrect a community bus has been undertaken by Allan Billingham a local Town Councilor.

 

Alan has spent many hours and worked tirelessly to move this project forward, he has secured a 16-seat bus which will has kindly been supplied by Andrew Lewis of Lewis Coaches.

 

A further £ 1,000 has been contributed from Councilor Bishop’s Locality Fund, and with and additional £ 500.00 kindly contributed by Brandon & District Rotary Club the commencement of the community bus is now well within view.

 

With the target set at £ 2,000 to kick-start the project I am sure Allan would welcome any further contributions.

 

The Community Bus project also needs volunteer drivers to support the scheme if you are interested or know of anyone please contact Alan.

 

It may also be worth considering that local businesses may wish to advertise on the exterior of the Bus, if this is of interest make Allan or myself aware.

 

After hearing the communities distress at the Town Council meeting Allan really took up the challenge for the people of Brandon.

 

You can contact Allan via email: allan.billingham@btintenet.com  

Thank you to all Town Councilors who have supported Allan with this project.
