They were joined by Mayor of Biggleswade David Albone and North East Beds MP Alastair Burt.

Peter Davies, publicity manager, said: “The service continues to flourish with our great team of volunteer drivers and committee.”

The Ivel Sprinter operates a hail and ride bus service around the local towns and villages including Biggleswade, Langford, Sandy, Potton, Everton and Tempsford to facilitate visits to doctors, shops, libraries and more, and also runs to Bedford, St Neots and Cambridge.

They are looking for someone, possibly someone retired, to look after the general day to day maintenance of the two vehicles. If you are interested contact secretary Gerry Amsden on 01767 260797.
