Barton Town Service timetable change?

Currently the Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning/lunchtime 254 Barton Town Service, operated by Hornsby Travel for North Lincolnshire Council and Barton Town Council, operates an 'irregular' timetable around the town. It can broadly be split into four sections; Tesco-Market Place-Eastfield Road-Meadow Drive-Market Place-Tesco, Tesco-Market Place-Bowmandale-Tofts Road-Market Place-Tesco, Tesco-Westfield Road and return, and Tesco-Far Ings Road and return. The timetable is available on Hornsby's website, though the printed North Lincolnshire Council timetable probably displays it better.

In the latest Bartonian magazine published by Barton Town Council however there is a different timetable printed. The service still operates Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, but with a revised timetable providing an even-interval hourly service on the Meadow Drive and Bowmandale sections, while the Westfield Road and Far Ings Road sections are merged into one, operating Tesco-Westfield Road-Far Ings Road-Tesco. There is no 'effective date' provided, but is this the new 254 timetable to begin at some unknown future date?
