YOUNG people in South Cambridgeshire will now be able to hop aboard a second Connections Bus.

The buses visit new communities and villages that do not have a venue for youth activities, giving young people somewhere to use the internet and games consoles, play sport, relax and be with their friends. It is popular in villages such as Orwell, where it makes regular stops.

Previously there had only been on vehicle serving the whole district. However, a second bus has now been purchased, and was launched last weekend.

Cllr Charlie Nightingale, chairman of South Cambridgeshire District Council, said, "I'm delighted that this second bus will mean even more local young people will have a place to go to have fun with their friends.

"This is a fantastic project which we are very pleased to support - congratulations to everyone involved in getting this new bus on the road."

Villages that would like a visit from the Connections Bus project should contact Alan Webb, project manager, on (01223) 232978 or admin@connectionsbusproject.org.uk for more information on times and fees.
