New Bus Service Will Link The Maltings With Gillingham

A new half-hourly bus service will link The Maltings estate, Shaftesbury High Street and Gillingham railway station from 1st September. But the Shaftesbury to Motcombe service will become less frequent.

Cllr Derek Beer says this new route will be part-funded from a contribution by estate developer Persimmon.
