Thurgoland Parish Bus Route changes

posted 5 Jun 2017, 00:26 by Graeme Johnson   [ updated 1 Aug 2018, 03:34 by Thurgoland Parish Council ]

SYPTE has confirmed that Yorkshire Tiger have surrendered their contract, that SYPTE had accordingly re-tendered the routes they currently provide, and that Stagecoach will be taking them over with effect from 2nd September 2018. 

This will apply to most of Thurgoland parish bus routes, namely 23 / 23a / 24 / 24a. 

TM Travel will continue to provide their existing Mon - Sat evening and Sunday services for these routes as well as continuing to provide services on route 29.

One change will be that the present additional concession offered by Yorkshire Tiger to bus pass holders of a £1 fare before 9:30am will not be offered by Stagecoach. 

However, Stagecoach offers a different concession not currently offered by Yorkshire Tiger. Bus pass holders travelling to hospital appointments before 09:30am travel free with Stagecoach on production of a hospital appointment letter with the bus pass. 

We are not aware of any other changes at the present time aside from the change of operator.

Parish Precept

posted 18 Feb 2017, 04:57 by Thurgoland Parish Council   [ updated 23 May 2018, 13:09 ]

The Parish Council resolved to set  a Parish Precept for the next financial year very slightly higher than the current year. The increase is to cover additional costs of insurance, the salary costs of the clerk, and a small increase in the cost of printing the community newsletter. It will also enable a contribution to be made towards the cost of road safety measures to slow traffic down in the centre of Thurgoland, if an acceptable scheme can be agreed with Barnsley MBC.

Super Fast South Yorkshire

posted 10 Feb 2017, 02:01 by Thurgoland Parish Council   [ updated 10 Feb 2017, 02:02 ]

In September 2014, South Yorkshire joined forces with BT in a multi-million pound deal to extend the availability of high-speed, fibre broadband to around 98 per cent of homes and businesses.

So many aspects of peoples’ modern home and working lives are dependent on a fast and reliable internet connection.

From home working to internet banking, watching TV online to social media usage, keeping in touch with friends and relatives, home shopping and gaming, having a good connection is vital.
