A NEW bus is on the road in Yate to help youth workers keep in contact with local youngsters.

The vehicle is known as the Urbie - the Urban Vehicle for Information and Education - and having taken delivery of the vehicle, Yate Town Council is now planning an official launch.

The Urbie will be used by the detached youth team, whose work is funded by the council, to get around the town and engage with young people.

Buying the bus was made possible by the support of a number of local organisations and businesses, including Merlin Housing Society, the Avon and Somerset Police Community Trust, engineering firm Renishaw, One Stop Carriers for Causes, Sodbury and Yate Business Association and Yate and District Rotary Club.
