Chatteris county councillor Anne Hay said: “I would like to thank Mayor James Palmer for taking on board my concerns over the lack of good public transport for the people of Chatteris.” 

Mayor Palmer said: “Covid has had a big impact on the number of people using buses and other means of public transport over the last year.
