The Morpeth Shopper Bus

During our initial survey, residents told us that they want the option of a direct bus to Morpeth. Big Local funds are being used to provide a Community Transport (CT) minibus service to Morpeth on Wednesdays - Morpeth Market day. WATBus will be providing this service for us, and it will run around the four CELL villages, then into Morpeth and back, once each Wednesday. Timings have been altering slightly; typically a summer and winter timetable.

To use a Community Transport service, regulations specify that passengers must be members of an appropriate organisation. Therefore anyone wishing to use the service will need to join our scheme and carry a membership card.

We are busy updating our procedures for the Community Membership Scheme so, for the moment, if you would like to request a membership card please contact the CELL office on 07450 716601 or email enquiries@cell-biglocal.org.uk. As part of this we are also in the process of phasing out the CELL Post Boxes, which are rarely used, so please do contact us using the methods above.
