Play area access query

Date: Friday 26th May 2017

KIRKBY Stephen town councillors were asked to investigate access to an Eden’s Council play area near the town’s primary school, after a member of the public informed them that the school had started locking a gate which also provided access to the play area.

It was reported that the Eden Valley Transport Group (EVTG) is in touch with a national service provider about the possibility of a bus service for the town. Also, the founder of the Little White Bus is meeting with the EVTG to talk about his experiences of running a bus company.

John Johnstone was re-elected council chairman, with Paul Richardson vice-chairman. Phil Dew introduced himself as the new county councillor for Kirkby Stephen.
