Councillor calls for re-instatement of village service after new bus timetables announced
Callington's Mebyon Kernow Cornwall Councillor and Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for South East Cornwall, Andrew Long, made the call after the revised 76 service from First Kernow was published which showed that the village of St Dominick would now only get one bus a day rather than the original five stops.

"Prior to 7th September, the 76 service stopped in St Dominick on a two hourly basis, part of which was subsidised by Cornwall Council.  First Kernow have now reduced this to just one service in each direction which leaves many local residents, especially the elderly and vulnerable, with no direct service either to Callington or Saltash.

This change means that these residents now have to rely on a dial a ride service to Callington, or walking over a mile to catch the service at St Mellion or Ashton.  This is clearly unacceptable" said Cllr Long.

"Given that we are funding part of the route, I have asked the public service officer to assist in putting pressure on First Kernow to amend this so that the people living in St Dominick can get a reasonable service" he added.

The revised service came into operation on 7th September and the new timetable  means that the only bus service regularly heading south towards Saltash and Plymouth is at 0700 while heading to Callington only the 1810 service remains.
