Watermill Coaches – new service

Having successfully bid for a number of local bus service contracts, Watermill Coaches will be extending service 41 to include Tarves. The service will run to Inverurie via Oldmeldrum and terminate at Insch. I will post timetables and fare structures in due course and timetables will be available in the Tarves Spar.

Methlick Cycle Challenge – Saturday 11th July


The Methlick Cycle Challenge cannot run without the volunteers in the background and we require marshals to cover some of the road junctions across the event route. In addition, it would be beneficial to have a couple of trained first aiders that could provide initial assistance to any competitors requiring attention.

Please get in touch at info@methlickcyclechallenge.co.uk.
