A long-awaited bus ser­vice be­tween Ren­wick and Blen­heim is a step closer, with the coun­cil look­ing for a com­pany to run the route. The an­nounce­ment has been met with ex­cite­ment in the small Marl­bor­ough town. But whether or not the ser­vice goes ahead de­pends on cost, and coun­cil­lors will vote on the pro­posal later in the year. wanted to un­der­stand what’s go­ing on with all the par­ties be­fore we got in­volved, but we just want some­one to get on with it, re­ally," van Grinsven said. "I think there has been a bit of si­lence about it be­cause it’s been held up with the elec­tions. But it’s quite im­por­tant for the town."
