Chelsea players launch Chatterbus
Chelsea FC players, Jacob Maddox, Martell Taylor-Crossdale and Miro Muheim, attended the launch of the Chatterbus, one of Surrey’s first community bus services. It will run daily between Cobham and Weybridge. Most of the funding to run the bus was provided by the football club and Surrey County Council while Elmbridge Borough Council, care firm Anchor, Cobham business Cargill and local churches and charities also contributed.
The county council’s Cabinet Member for Transport, John Furey, said, ‘It’s fantastic that Chelsea have joined us in getting behind this great community transport link. Our approach is all about working with others, whether they’re a famous football club, a business or a charity, for the benefit of residents and I’m sure this type of service could work really well in other areas of the county too.’
