The Guinness Book of Classic British TV describes On the Buses as ITV’s “longest running and most self-consciously unfunny series”. The slow demise of Herefordshire’s rural bus service is a similarly disappointing scenario.
Next week’s Herefordshire Green Network Gathering is an opportunity for all of us who are concerned about the decline of local bus services to find out more, and to hear about the opportunities to develop a more sustainable long term transport solution for Herefordshire.
Local experts Anna Heywood and Les Lumsdon will join us for this free evening of talks and discussion. Anna is co-owner of Drover Holidays and coordinator of Hay Cycle Fest. Les is the longstanding bus campaign coordinator at Rail & Bus for Herefordshire, and author of Slow Travel in the Marches. Both Anna and Les have played essential roles in the success story of the Hay Ho! Community Bus.
To find out more join us on Wednesday 20th September, 7.30 – 9pm at De Koffie Pot, Left Bank, Hereford. Or come along early from 3 – 7pm for the Sunset Market in De Koffie Pot’s lovely Courtyard, to buy fresh local produce in the early autumn sunshine. Bring a basket, and maybe you could even take the bus home afterwards…
