Save buses that serve hos­pi­tals

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

I AM very con­cerned about fur­ther cuts in bus ser­vices.

Of great con­cern is the grad­ual de­cline in the 353 Slough to Amer­sham ser­vice. This has been whit­tled down from one an hour on week­days to one ev­ery two hours, only one on Satur­day and, of course, none on Sun­days.

A mem­ber of our fam­ily who re­lies on th­ese buses says that re­cently the only Satur­day bus has not turned up on oc­ca­sions.

May I point out that this is the only di­rect way to get to Wex­ham Park Hos­pi­tal from the Amer­sham area. Not ev­ery­one has their own trans­port!

I sin­cerely hope that con­sid­er­a­tion will be given to th­ese points so that the fu­ture of our buses will be safe. For many peo­ple, they are a life­line.

our armed forces. Lord Richards, for­mer head of the Army, has just warned of a lack of strat­egy in deal­ing with the resur­gent ter­ror­ist threat we are go­ing to face from the likes of Is­lamic State in Iraq.

The UK needs strong lead­er­ship at this trou­bling time. In­stead we have a dither­ing Prime Min­is­ter stuck in a pan­tomime horse coali­tion. Do­minic Grieve is al­ready soft on im­mi­gra­tion and Europe and I hope he will not go down this route in other ar­eas.
