Bus Passes

Gloucestershire County Council are sending out leaflets to people who need to renew their concessionary bus passes (by March 2013) in alphabetical order between September and the end of December. You have the option of applying for a new pass by post, telephone or on line. All disabled pass holders should receive either a new pass or application pack by October 2012. For any queries about bus passes please call the Concessionary Fares Inquiry Line at Shire Hall on 01452 426265 or go to the council website

Your Village on the BBC's The One Show

BBC TV's The One Show is looking for community projects across the UK that need a helping hand. "We want to use our influence to galvanise volunteer efforts in different schemes for a new weekly feature on the programme in the coming months. For example - perhaps you have a community hall that needs a lick of paint and a good tidy up but haven't been able to organise a volunteer day to sort it out. Has your local fireworks display/concert been forced to cancel? Maybe we can help. Is your community bus service at risk unless more volunteers are found? Let the One Show spearhead the search to keep it going. Or maybe you have a dedicated community stalwart who deserves a big thank you - let the One Show organise a suitable celebration. We are currently at the early stages of planning this but please get in touch as soon as possible if you think you have suitable project or idea." Email and mark your emails 'One Show Community Action'.
