ATDRPG have received the encouraging news that included in the forthcoming December timetable will be an additional Sunday Morning service. Leaving Bristol Temple Meads at 9.20 the Great Western Train service will call at Filton Abbeywood, Bristol Parkway, Yate, Cam and Dursley, Gloucester, Cheltenham Spa arriving at Ashchurch for Tewkesbury at 10.30 and onward to Worcester Shrub Hill for 10.51. The service will offer connections to Birmingham (arriving 11.37) and the North, Malvern and the Cotswold Line. The additional south bound journey will depart from Worcester 11.38, from Ashchurch for Tewkesbury at 11.53 arriving at Bristol Temple Meads for 13.09, offering onward connections if required. Cotswold Line Promotion Group (CPLG) http://clpg.org.uk/ have been pressing for this improvement for over five years The priority still remains to push for an improved weekday service and to reduce the disproportionate fares between Worcester and Gloucester.
