‘Go To Town’ Bus Service Update

13 Jun 2016

“GO TO TOWN” FOR BETTER CONNECTIONS!

A new bus route to Lynn is being introduced by ‘Go To Town’ – the bus services arm of West Norfolk Community Transport – on Monday July 11th.

The timetable will provide up to five journeys a day to and from Lynn, with the first arrival in town just after 8.30am and the last departure home at 5.45pm, with other times during the day.    The times are spread to be ideal for journeys to work in the town centre area, for students accessing college, and for morning and afternoon as well as all day shopping or other trips.

The bus will start at Docking and pick up at Monks Close, the Construction College, Great Bircham, Anmer (the morning shopping bus only) and Flitcham.  Apart from a call at the new Tapping House Hospice it will then run direct into Lynn.

This is a major new initiative drawing on funds provided by the Parish Councils along the route and other major organisations in the area, including the Construction College at Bircham Newton.   No new money is being provided by the County Council – the more usual source of funds – apart from that they already invest into a bus for college students and the one from Bircham to the Primary School at Docking.   Its future is very much dependent on how many people use it – so please give it a try.  

Bus times will be published in a timetable to be distributed a couple of weeks before start date, and also available at key points in your village.

Oil Syndicate - March 2015 - Important Information

01 Mar 2015

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE THINKING FUEL SCHEME

For members who have a Direct Debit, we have made it even easier to order your heating oil by launching a brand new, dedicated email address to send your orders to:

thinkingfuel@af-affinity.co.uk

Please send your order with the following information: 1. Your full name, 2. Amount required, 3. Any delivery instructions, 4. Post code.

Welcome to the Thinking Fuel Heating Oil Syndicate for March.

For those of you who have recently joined, the process to order heating oil is:

1. Ring Affinity on (01603) 881 888 on Monday 2nd of March from 11.00am (this is when we get our daily prices) to place your order. We will be able to quote the daily price to give you an idea of where the market is but we will be unable to confirm the final syndicate price.

2. Orders can be held for up to 2 weeks to enable us to take advantage of any drops in the fuel market and negotiate a syndicate price with our suppliers.*

3. If you are unable to wait for a period of 2-3 weeks for delivery you also have the option to take the daily price and order immediately.

All syndicate orders need to be placed by 5pm Monday 2nd March, orders placed after this time will not be included in the syndicate order.

*If the price rise is greater than 3ppl with the syndicate you will be contacted and the order will not go through without a further conversation to confirm the order.

To order call (01603) 881 888 or email our new dedicated ordering address (for members with Direct Debits): thinkingfuel@af-affinity.co.uk

 

Payment
The success of Thinking Fuel through the Norfolk Rural Community Council has been very positive and we continue to bring on further villages to help increase the size and therefore the savings of the scheme. In order for this scheme to be successful and the heating oil to be as cheap as possible we are looking to move people onto Direct Debit as the preferred method of payment.

If you do not have a Direct Debit in place, payment will need to be made by Debit or Credit card at the time of order (there is a 2% service charge for Credit card transactions). If you are placing an order to be included in the monthly syndicate, payment will be taken based on our current daily price. Once we have the syndicate price, a credit will be arranged back to your card upon invoice.

Monthly Payment Plan

If you are looking to put money aside each month towards your next fuel order you can start a Monthly Payment Plan.

For more information on the Monthly Payment Plan please call 01603 881888 or email: enquiries@af-affinity.co.uk

Terms of Delivery

The minimum order quantity for heating oil is 500lts.

Please ensure that we are made aware of any delivery instructions, for example if your tank is locked, so that we can inform the supplier.

Please ensure that the supplier is able to have all necessary vehicular access to your premises in order to allow delivery to be made. You must also ensure that all relevant storage facilities are suitable (in terms of size, specification and adequately maintained) for the goods to be delivered. Failed deliveries may incur a charge of up to £50.


 

 

 

 

Village Link Bus Scheme

01 Feb 2015

Great Massingham Bus Action Group has been in contact with Norfolk Green and Norfolk County Council since January 2013, with a view to restoring a scheduled Norfolk Green bus service through the Massinghams. This was based on a massive, formal, village-wide petition calling for restoration of the service. After discussions in 2013, Norfolk Green proposed a timetable to serve Massingham and a group of other villages as follows:

                   

Route A:      4/5 buses per day

Raynham Park, Harpley, Great Massingham, Flitcham, Hillington, South Wootton, College of West Anglia,  King’s Lynn Bus Station.

 

Route B:         2 buses per day

Docking, Monks Close, National Construction College (NCC), Great Bircham, Anmer, Flitcham, Hillington, South Wootton, King’s Lynn Bus Station.

It has been agreed to evaluate the feasibility of the proposal by holding a six month piolet scheme starting in April 2015 based on the draft routes A & B

More information is available under the Parish Council downloads
