Rothbury parish councillors are making a pledge – to ditch their cars and use the bus.At last week’s meeting, chairman Mark Gilson called on members to start using independently-run Spirit Bus services instead of using their cars to drive into town.

Coun Gilson said that it was the time to ‘use it or lose it’.

Coun Steven Bridgett added that owner Steve Hurst would be invited to join bus routing talks in the near future at the county council.
