A village bus service has been saved from the axe after a new operator was found to run it.

The number 36 from Boston to Sleaford, which was run by Centrebus-owned Kimes Coaches, was due to finish this week.

However the route has now been taken on by Sleafordian - with Lincolnshire County Council providing £5,616 extra funding to help.

Anita Ruffle, transport manager south at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “We are pleased to announce that Lincolnshire County Council has been able to provide extra funding to keep the number 36 service in running.

“A new operator, Sleafordian, will take over from Wednesday. Passengers should see no disruption in service.”
