Wifi on First buses

Around 40 vehicles in Bath – in addition to those operating on the university services and the park and ride – have also been fitted. 

WiFi is provided for free. It is dependent on signal strength: it only works where a 3G signal can be detected.
Customers wishing to log on to the free on-board WiFi should ask their devices to search for available WiFi networks and select the one called "first wifi".  This will then take users to the log in page. They will then need to register the first time they use it, but thereafter will be able to log in automatically the next time they travel on the buses.

Will be interesting if this applies to the 14, some of the buses are old  !

Ridge Green Close to Fosse Gardens footpath closed from 14th April

We have received this notice of the footpath being closed

Notice is given that Bath and North East Somerset Council in exercise of its powers under section 14 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 intends to make an order the effect of which will be to temporarily introduce a Footpath closure on that length of Footpath and steps running between Fosse Gardens and Odd Down.

This order is required because works are being or are proposed to be executed on or near the footpath consequent upon the need to facilitate replacement of timber post and retaining wall and will be operative from 14th April 2014 this is anticipated to be for a period of maximum of 1 month.


Footpath Fullers Way, Cranmore Place, Banwell Road and Fosse Gardens.

Red Lion Roundabout

Normally the council will plant wild flowers, but in order to bring it up to a more sustainable bed we will plan over the next few weeks to cover the area with weed suppressant and lay Cotswold stone on top and planting a mixture of 3 colour lavender plants and 3 different colour of ornamental grasses. 
The council will leave the outside edge green grass as this is often damaged by vehicles and easy to repair a mix of taller ornamental grasses will be around the base of the post, we will also plant pockets of wild flowers to add to the overall colour.
