833 Service – New Twitter Account

Vectare have advised the Parish Council that they have  launched a Twitter account – @VectareLive

This twitter page is for dedicated service updates relating to local buses in the area, including service 833.

The Parish Council would be grateful if you’d make local residents aware if possible.

Thank You



Our MP, Ruth Edwards is currently conducting a transport survey which seeks the views of her constituents on the sort of transport infrastructure they’d like to see and how existing services across Rushcliffe could be improved. The survey is available here


She would be most grateful if you would complete this survey and  encourage other Cropwell Bishop residents to do so as well.

A Footpath/Cycleway Alongside Nottingham Road To The A46

With the renewed interest in Cycling and walking following the Coronavirus crisis, Cropwell Bishop Parish Council has written to our MP, Ruth Edwards and the County Council requesting completion of the footpath/cycleway on Nottingham Road from the New Dairy at the top of the hill to the A46.

This will provide a safer route from the village towards Cotgrave (via the canal towpath) and link to the existing cycleways into Nottingham. The Council are considering our request.
Colin Bryan noticed the following web site which gives an opportunity to highlight our cycling/footway needs.

Colin and I have already ‘dropped a pin’ to highlight our needs on Nottingham Road and it would be helpful if others could add their ‘likes’ and perhaps drop more pins to encourage Council action on this necessary cycleway and footpath for our village.
