It is with great regret that we would like to announce that the Co. Wicklow Playbus Project (or Buala Bus as it is fondly known) will come to an end on 28th of June due to the loss of core government funding from the Department of Social Protection. The Buala Bus has brought much enjoyment to many children and parents throughout the county over the past two years, particularly in rural areas, which are isolated from many mainstream services.
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all staff involved in the project and of course the communities who have supported the project along the way. The inter-agency committee who oversee the governance of the bus is working hard to develop new and exciting services for the bus so hopefully it won’t be too long until you see the Buala Bus winding its way through the county once more.
