ARRANGEMENTS have been finalised for a free bus service to ferry people to and from St Neots for the switching on of the Christmas lights.
The town council expects almost 3,000 visitors for the annual event and is keen to reduce parking problems.
Councillor Julia Hayward put forward the idea after discussions with Whippet Coaches and the town council agreed to pay £250 to support the service.
Unlike previous years, parking will be limited in the Riverside Car Park because it will be the site of the funfair, which usually operates on the Market Square.
The switch-on will take place at 6pm on Friday, November 30, by Chas and Dave, who will then go on to perform in the Priory Centre.
On the evening of the big switch-on, the normal 463 bus service will run until 5.45pm when a free service will start, operating to and from the Market Square, Eaton Socon, Eaton Ford and Eynesbury.
