Bring Spalding's kids home safe! Bring back later Town Service buses!

Bring Spalding's kids home safe! Bring back later Town Service buses!

Restore the later IT1 and IT2 Spalding Town Bus Services (jointly registered as the F42 route).

Why is this important?

We need the restoration of the later IT1 and IT2 Spalding Town Bus Services (jointly registered as the F42 route), to ensure that children who have a longer walk across town, via some nastily busy and badly lit roads, can get home without incident. The restoration of these services reduce the need for family members to collect children by car, which would further reduce the risk posed to children by traffic outside schools.

The population of Spalding has grown hugely since the later services on this route were withdrawn, and it's time for a rethink that protects Spalding's future, it's children.

They say it takes a village to raise a child. We all have a duty of care to each other, but particularly to our most vulnerable.
