Alternative provision for Local Bus Services

Unfortunately, the road closure at Pulham St Mary from 25th July to 12th August will affect the local bus services in the villages of Pulham Market, and Pulham St Mary.

Therefore, Norfolk County Council will offer a free ring and ride service operated by Able Taxis Limited, which can be booked 24 hours in advance to collect passengers from the Bus stops in the villages for either journeys to Harleston or to meet the First 36A bus at Long Stratton for onward travel to Norwich.  Please note that this will be a shared service.
