Residents contacted me to ask why the bus did not run through Prudhoe.
I took this up with the company who gave the following reply.
Unfortunately it won’t be possible to operate to Prudhoe this year.
As you know, we have a shortage of drivers so anyone operating the Santa bus is doing so as a volunteer, so we need to ensure they know the route being travelled, and the time they take to drive needs to be within the legal hours available. Unfortunately this meant we were unable to get all the way to Prudhoe this year.
