A new school bus service has just been started to help pupils living in Dunmow and Mersea Island to get to school on time.

The St Mary’s Senior School bus will stop at Felsted, Great Notley, Braintree, Coggeshall, Stanway, as well as East and West Mersea, Peldon and Layer.

Tailored afternoon drop off points will also help students to get home.

Hilary Vipond, school principal, said she hopes it “will help our families by providing reliable and safe school transport for their daughters.” For more information visit
