Bus services are getting there

Deep funding cuts by Herefordshire Council have left many local bus services in a sorry state. Now work by Leominster Greens and others to restore some vital bus links by getting the town and parish councils working together is paying off.

Ludlow Town Council has agreed to back Leominster’s initiative on the 490 service between the towns by giving a £1,000 grant.

“This is welcome news,” said Leominster Town Councillor Trish Marsh. “We want people to come to Leominster to shop. Not everyone has unlimited access to a car – a surprisingly high number of local people don’t own a vehicle.”
