It will be named the 82 and 82A service.As Tim Jennings of Somerbus explained” Times have changed and we are listening to our customers. However we will still be running the old route once a day at 13.00” Copies of the new timetable will be available from The Hub Library in Paulton, Paulton Parish Council office and on the 82 and 82A bus.
Chair of Paulton Parish Council Les Wild (pictured), commented ” It’s good to see more of Paulton being reached on this route such as the Britten’s Hill area as residents have felt the loss of the 178 bus service along this route”

So if you are worried about rising gas and electricity bills and would like advice on how to lower them, including information on grants for energy efficiency measures or how to switch energy suppliers, or even advice on dealing with damp and condensation problems then please drop in and see us.
National No Smoking Day was on the 12th of March....If you missed it but would like to know more come and chat about your options 3-6pm any Wednesday at Paulton hospital.
