Guided bus good for Huntingdonshire
Writing in the Hunts Post ( 28 December, page 6) Bob Burn-Murdoch discusses the beneficial effect of the busway on Huntingdonshire generally, and especially St Ives. For months after the busway opened 'St Ives was thronged with crowds of people from the big city'. It's our big chance, he says - we offer a range of shops in a town centre visitors can walk through in a few minutes. Bob also notes that Cambridge has more visitors that it knows what to do with, but now some of them can be directed to St Ives via the busway. Hopefully they will discover, not just St Ives and its excellent museum of which Bob is the curator, but also Huntingdonshire's other historic towns and villages.
