VILLAGERS in Oakford and Knowstone will now find it easier to pick up shopping at South Molton market thanks to a new pilot bus service which has the potential to become permanent.
Knowstone Parish Council and Exe Valley Community Market Bus have now teamed up to run a one-day a week minibus service throughout November.
The service connecting Oakford via Roachill and Knowstone to South Molton Market ran for the first time last Thursday but will run for the three subsequent Thursdays (November 8, 15 and 22).
To help the service run in the future, organisers say they need volunteer drivers as well as passengers.
For details of how you can help out or to book your seat on the 16-seater bus and get fare information contact John or Olwen Smith on 01398 341764.
