With Stagecoach Midlands altering their services within the Kettering district, villages and the villagers of Pytchley, Orlingbury, Little Harrowden and Mears Ashby which recieves currently upto 5-6 buses a day on these areas, as of 1/11/2014 these areas will be entirely UNSERVED thus cutting off a lifeline to the outside world for many people especially those who certainly don't have cars. I was thinking about writing to a few Northamptonshire firms to see if they would be willing to have a service operating to these villages even if its once or twice daily. What does everybody think to that?

Tenders have already been issued by NCC for 2 services covering these villages which need to be submitted by tomorrow morning, different structure to the current service provision but in terms of total number of journeys it won't be that far off what is currently offered.
