The Shipston Link

The community bus service has been running to and from Shipston-on-Stour for over 25 years, "bringing Shipston and the rural communities together". We now have a new WebSite  which, in addition to general  information, and our ongoing appeal for volunteer drivers, has  comprehensive Time-Table information  of each of our Services to the villages and towns in our area.  

Important changes to the Community Links service:


Residents of the South Zone, including Quinton, Shipston-on-Stour and Tysoe, will be able to use the service on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

For any queries about the zones and days and the new transport scheme please contact Community Links on 01789 264491.





Crime and Neighbourhood Watch  

Contact Penny White (Tel: 663811) to be kept informed (e.g. by email:  Do report anything suspicious to her or directly to the police (101 for non-emergency). . The parish council gets regular reports of suspicious activity and crimes from the Shipston police which can be passed on if Penny has your email address. NB you do have to send your email address to Penny – being on the parish council newsletter list is not the same thing!

You can also sign up to the Shipston Rural Watch for reports from the police e.g. suspicious vehicles etc at:
