Protecting local bus services

David has been campaigning with community groups and local residents to protect local bus services. Last year, he joined with the Rode Business Forum and local campaigners to prevent First Bus from cutting the 267 route and as a result of this campaign, First agreed to continue running the service. More recently, First have announced further cuts to routes, and David has been in contact with the Managing Director of First, the Frome and Villages Bus Users Group, the County Council, local residents and others to devise a solution which ensures that our rural communities and villages – such as Rode, Holcombe, Coleford and many others retain the connections they badly need.
