A CASH grant towards the purchase of a new minibus has been awarded to Uttlesford Community Travel.
The Dunmow-based charity was given �3500 from Essex County Council's Millennium Fund as part of an �80,000 spend countywide.
UCT secretary, Maggie Craddock, said: "Very soon we will be replacing the oldest bus in our fleet to help bring down the cost of repairs. It will allow us to run an even more efficient service."
Chairman Ian Shaw also received a certificate for the charity's work in the community since they formed in March 1997.
