Parish Magazine

The Hodnet Parish Magazine is now available on the website!

Eventually 4 months’ worth of magazines will be on the Home Page of the website at any time. They’ll be in a white box on the right hand side, imaginatively titled ‘The Parish Magazine’.

Thank you, Ed, for setting this up.

£2 Bus Travel until 31st March 2023

People can travel around Shropshire by bus for no more than £2 for a single journey until the end of March, thanks to a Government fare cap scheme launched this week.

The ‘Get Around for £2’ campaign runs from 1 January to 31 March 2023 and aims to get more people to travel by bus, and reduce emissions and congestion by taking an estimated two million cars off the roads.

Backed by £60 million of Government investment, it will help users save money this winter, by capping single tickets at £2 across England, outside of London.

The No.64 Shrewsbury to Market Drayton service is one of the routes included.

In Shropshire the following operators are taking part in the scheme

  • Arriva Midlands North
  • Minsterley Motors*
  • BP Brown Travel trading as Select Bus Services
  • Banga Buses
  • Lugg Valley Travel

*not including the 38, 701, 722, 55, 738 and 740 services
