WATAG (Western Area Transport Action Group) exists to improve public transport in the Westernmost part of Dorset. It is a forum for passengers, bus companies, council officials and local councillors. WATAG meets once every 2 months in Bridport. All are welcome.

West Dorset Western Area Transport Action Group (WATAG) announces its Annual General Meeting which will be held at 7.00 pm. on Thursday 28th January 2021. The Agenda will be:- A. Apologies; B. Chair’s Report; C. Treasurer’s Report; D. Election of Officers and Committee for 2021. There will be a general discussion afterwards. All are welcome.

It is a year since we were able to hold a meeting in public – in fact it was our last AGM and General Meeting held 23rd January 2020! Since then, Covid-19 has had a huge impact on all our lives, and public transport has been severely affected; indeed it is probably fair to say that without Central Government and Local Authority support none of the conventional public transport services – rail and bus – would be operating at the moment.

As we are unable to hold a meeting in public, this will be a virtual meeting, using ‘zoom’. For further information, please email watag@hotmail.co.uk or telephone the Chairman.
