Great news for Caton and Brookhouse

Plans are being drawn up to connect every property in Caton. Some bottlenecks in Brookhouse are resolved and both areas can access new government funding. We need as many people as possible to fill in the Expression Of Interest form to make this happen! Please complete this form even if the idea of taking the B4RN service is a future possibility. THIS EXPANSION OF THE SERVICE WILL ONLY HAPPEN IF ENOUGH PEOPLE REGISTER.
