Bottisham Parish Council has had no contact from Stagecoach to inform of the planned cut in services. The first information Parish Council received was late on Monday 19 September from the AtoB1102 Group. A meeting with Stagecoach is taking place today, Thursday 22nd September at which Bottisham Parish Council will be represented as well as Bottisham Village College and County and District Councillors. The purpose is to explore short and long term solutions to the problems this presents to all who rely on these services, whether for travelling to school, college or work as well as those who need the bus to get essential shopping etc.

Further information will be published as soon as it is available.

In the meantime, you may wish to consider signing the petition accessible through the link below:

The King was proclaimed at the Accession Council at 10.00hrs Saturday 10 September in the State Apartments of St James’s Palace.

His Majesty King Charles III succeeded to the throne as soon as Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II passed away. The King was proclaimed at the Accession Council at 10.00hrs Saturday 10 September in the State Apartments of St James’s Palace.

The Accession Council, attended by Privy Councillors, without The King present, proclaimed the Sovereign, and formally approved various consequential Orders, including the arrangements for the Proclamation.

The King then convened His Majesty’s first Privy Council, at which he made his Declaration and read and signed an oath to uphold the security of the Church in Scotland and approved Orders in Council which facilitate continuity of government.
