We are very pleased to announce the continuation of the Saturday Minibus for another 12 months. This is due to grants from Friends of Tewin, Tewin Parish Council and East Herts Council who all have our heartfelt thanks. We would also like to acknowledge the support of Tewin Over 50s Club and CDA Herts.
The fortnightly timetable which includes Welwyn North, WGC, Hertford and Stevenage continues. The Minibus is available for all those in the Parish aged 12 and over at the moment but the Steering Group is looking at how younger children may be included.
We are particularly interested in the transport needs of young people of secondary school age and there is a questionnaire which can be completed on Survey Monkey to express their views. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 01992 289054 for details.
Please continue to contact Ann Kevis to book a place and to pay your Fare (£2.50 single, £5 return. Under 18s half price) Call Ann on 01438 717473.
Please refer to the published timetable for departure and arrival times. Posters are located at the Memorial Hall and Bus Shelter
