Somerset County Council plans to withdraw funding for the Saturday bus service in 2015, which would leave Nunney without public transport on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays – a bad move for residents, their visitors and tourists.

The council has started a consultation on the proposed changes. A full overview of the proposed cuts to subsidised bus services is available at http://www.somerset.gov.uk/EasySiteWeb/GatewayLink.aspx?alId=94754

To take part in the consultation, go to www.somerset.gov.uk/bussurvey. To receive a printed copy, phone call Somerset Direct on 0845 3459155.

The consultation is now open and closes on 29 December.
