A community bus service that transports people around a market town has had its future secured for another year thanks to grant funding.
The Uppingham Hopper, which runs in and around the town, has received a grant of £7988 from the National Lottery Community Fund and the money will be used to support the operating costs of the minibus service.
Coun Dave Ainslie, an Uppingham town councillor and vice chairman of Uppingham First Community Partnership, who put the bid together, said: “I’mdelighted with the National Lottery Community Fund’s help because it takes a weight of our minds that we can commit to running the hopper for another 12 months.
