The parish council let the field and the tenant wishes to make improvements to the drainage. We are currently discussing the requirements with Central Beds Council planning department.

70 BUS SERVICE

We have been advised by Central Beds Council Public Transport department that the Arriva bus company have made the commercial decision to amend the 70 and F70 timetable, as from the 11th March. Due to the success of the F70 service and poor patronage on the 70 between Dunstable and Leighton Buzzard, Arriva will withdraw the 70 service completely and will increase the frequency of the F70 and include a F77 which will serve Stanbridge between Peddars Lane and the Eight Bells Monday to Saturday. Tilsworth will therefore lose the 70 service to Luton/ Leighton Buzzard and Milton Keynes, but currently has the South Beds Dial a Ride service 47 operating through the village to Leighton Buzzard, Monday to Friday.
