Proposed changes to local bus services – public consultation launches

Proposed changes to local bus services:
Have your say by Monday 14 March 2016
I wrote last July setting out a number of changes to local bus services in Surrey. These came into effect from late August 2015. Our plans were drawn up following two widespread public consultations in which thousands of residents and stakeholders had their say. These changes delivered vital savings as part of the council’s Local Transport Review. However further savings are required over the next two years to ensure we can maintain as many of the services as possible that people in Surrey rely upon.
Some changes are now being proposed in year two of the review to a number of local bus services in Surrey, and a public consultation will launch tomorrow, giving residents the chance to have their say on the proposals. The consultation will run until Monday 14 March 2016. Full details of the proposed changes including details of alternative services where available can be found in the attached document. Please note, if a bus service is not listed within the document, no changes are proposed by Surrey County Council for 2016.
Residents can have their say by completing the questionnaire online at Paper questionnaires are available in Surrey libraries and local council offices, and residents can request a copy sent straight to their door by calling 0300 200 1003 (SMS: 07527 182 861).
On 24 May 2016 the final proposals that will be drawn up following the consultation will be considered by Cabinet.
Any agreed changes to bus services will be communicated to residents and stakeholders from June 2016, with the changes coming into effect from early September 2016.

Through the 1970s and 80s Soviet Ice Hockey was almost invincible, redefining what could be achieved in the sport despite constant government interference.
This fascinating, thrilling and often very funny documentary tells the story of their success,
and what happened to the players after their country suddenly disappeared. Simply outstanding.

Starring Saoirse Ronan as Eilis Lacey & Emory Cohen as Tony Fiorello Romantic drama, nominated for three Oscars. Yes, the lead character's name is Lacey, but I have far stronger reasons for recommending this adaptation of the Colm Tóibín bestseller about a young woman who immigrates to New York from Ireland in the 1950's. Humorous and heartfelt by turns, with unshowy but impressive acting across the board (including some notable supporting performances from Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters). A satisfying and outright enjoyable experience.

I've written many pieces in our Parish magazine about our bells;
at St Mary's Chiddingfold John.

By now I hope you appreciate that we have a very special legacy in these bells, and I do hope that the village is a much better place for having them. (It would be a very sad thing to NOT have them surely!)

However, I, and the other bell ringers, are mindful that our ringing is intrusive, (loud).
Despite our best efforts, there are occasions when the music is not at it's best, particularly when practice and learners are involved! Whilst we have some sound-control, the sound of the bells does reach parts that other music does not!

So I am asking the village, and anyone else affected, to let me know your views - More
