Many thanks to Anthony Stevenson in the village for his continued drive and pursuit of confirmation regarding the ongoing Villager Bus service into the village, and please note his update and information provided below with regard to this.


Rushcliffe Villager Bus Service


As you may be aware, the Rushcliffe Villager bus service, which serves our village, has only continued to run during this financial year, thanks to financial support from the County Council. This funding is due to end on 31 March 2024.

At the moment, the County Council is going through the process of producing its budget for the financial year 2024/25, which will include funding for public transport within the County.


If the Rushcliffe Villager service is important to you (perhaps for journeys relating to work, education, shopping, medical appointments etc.) and if you would be seriously affected if Shelford no longer had a bus service, then now is the time to make your voice known.


If you don't have a need to use the Rushcliffe Villager service, but may choose to use it for certain journeys in preference to using a car, whether this is to avoid the cost of parking, or you have concerns about the ongoing use of fossil fuels, or for any other reasons, and still wish to have that choice, then now is the time to make your voice known.


If you wish to express your views to our County Councillor, Roger Upton, about what the bus service means to you, and how it would affect you if it was no longer available, then you could email him at


I would also suggest that you send your views to the County Council's Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment, who is responsible for public transport, Councillor Neil Clarke at


You may wish to copy your email to our other elected representatives, our Member of Parliament, Ruth Edwards MP at, and our Rushcliffe Borough Councillor, Councillor Debbie Soloman at Whilst these representatives have no power to direct the County Council to provide funding for our bus service, as representatives of the community, they can have some influence.


Please also copy your emails to our Parish Council Chairman, Bev Bingham (, so the Parish Council are aware of the ongoing need for a bus service in the village.







If you wish to include anything in the Information Sheet please contact Bev and/or Karen as below:The Vilage Information Sheet is published Bi-Monthly and distributed to all houses in the village.
