Council News - June 2012

GOOD NEWS!

Stagecoach East Midlands have apologised for the problems since their timetable change in April and had hoped that the diversion in Louth to avoid the parking problems on Mercer Road would have improved, not made it worse. 

Stagecoach are changing the timetable from 23 July to provide more time for the Louth journey and to enable Tetney to be included in their network.
