Youngsters can avoid boredom during the school holidays with a special Magic Monday offer from bosses of the CallConnect bus service.

They are inviting youngsters aged between five and 17 to travel free on Mondays between July 29th and September 7th just by calling 0845 234 3344.

CallConnect, run by Lincolnshire County Council, allows people to book journeys by telephone and be picked up from town and rural locations, including Spalding, Surfleet and Crowland.

Its manager Paui Sanders said: “All teenagers look forward to the summer holidays but that can wear off pretty quickly if they live in a rural area where getting from one place to another, especially to see their friends, takes time and organisation.

“CallConnect can help out with just one simple phone call, quoting MM/13/CC, and we hope that young people all over Lincolnshire will make use of our distinctive purple buses to get them where they want to go in the holidays.”
