Dial-a-Ride gets lifeline from East Cambs

Thu, 01/08/2015

The future of Ely Soham Dial-a-Ride this year looks more secure thanks to a grant of £15,000 from East Cambridgeshire District Council.

At a Full Council meeting this evening (Thursday 8 January), Cllr James Palmer, Leader of the authority, put forward a proposal to approve the funding following his meeting with the organisation.

The £15,000 will allow Ely Soham Dial-a-Ride to suspend its threatened closure and help those in charge to investigate options to enable the organisation to become more sustainable in the future.
