CallConnect Pilot in North Lincolnshire

People living in the rural areas of North Lincolnshire will benefit from the introduction of a new bus service.  The new service is called ‘CallConnect’ and enables you to call for a bus to pick you up.

It is based on the CallConnect model already used by Lincolnshire County Council. In order to use the service you must register first. You can do this by telephone 0345 2638139

Or by the council’s email www.northlincs.gov.uk and follow the public transport pages.

The service operates from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 6pm on Saturdays. A bus will operate in each of the four zones:

  • Brigg, Caistor and the Ridge ward

  • Ferry ward

  • The area north of Scunthorpe including Burton upon Stather and Winterton

  • Isle of Axholme

The purpose of the service is to take you to a local centre or allow you to connect with an existing bus or rail service. The service will not compete with local bus services.

Once registered you can make your booking request. Once again this can be done on-line (available 24/7) or by telephone during the above hours. The booking team will then confirm your journey times.  The service uses a number of pick up points identified in North Lincolnshire. On the day of your journey go to your pick up point at the date and time you were given.  When the bus arrives you pay your fare or show your concessionary pass.

If you suffer from limited mobility then discuss this when you register as there might be an opportunity to pick you up closer to home.

The buses are 16 seater minibuses with wheelchair access.

  Village Heritage Displays

The Village Hall could become the setting for a permanent display on the heritage of the village. Tom Cave, Chair of the Parish Council is trying to track down a number of trophies and certificates that were awarded to Worlaby over the last century. Many of these were held by the late Nan Machin, who would produce them for Village shows. He recalls some being on display in the Old Chapel, many years ago.

There were certificates that recognised the Village contribution to 'Warship Week', together with some relating to raising funds for Spitfires and the like during the war. There were also a number of shields and cups that were awarded for sports events and horticultural efforts. The Recreation Committee agreed with his suggestion that it would be nice, if they are retrieved, for them to be located in the Village Hall as a display on the Village heritage.

These would be alongside the more recent 'Best Kept Village' awards and the many achievements we hope to get in the future. We’d love to hear from you if you know where any of the trophies and awards may be stored, or if you have something relating to the history of the village that may be suitable to be put on display. Please contact the Parish Clerk, Deb Hotson.
