Local Bus Services

Chris Heaton Harris has been talking to the University and Government Sec of State about a scheme to be jointly funded s a package using UNO. Uno are seeking an investment package for the first 2 years of the rollout. Uno would like Parish Councils to proactively promote and market the services in their communities their ususal local networks and new ones. Uno would also like Parish Councils to get together to find at least £50,000 a year for the first two years to demonstrate their support, commitment and a sense of ownership in return for ‘an enhanced role in service specification’. If all remains positive then Uno intend to proceed on a delivery timetable with a view for services to be fully operational in June 2019. Chris says it is a long process and no assurances can be given at this stage. anyone got any bright ideas for fund raising?
