Not ev­ery­one has the lux­ury of a car

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

Re: ‘Save buses that serve hos­pi­tals’ (Let­ters page, Bucks Ad­ver­tiser, Septem­ber 11) I SYM­PA­THISE with Chris­tine Feath­ers.

Chal­font St Giles has 8,000 in­hab­i­tants and we do not have a sin­gle bus to High Wy­combe or Wex­ham Hos­pi­tal. The prob­lem is not money but our coun­cil­lors do not con­sider it is nec­es­sary as ‘ev­ery­one has a car’, ac­cord­ing to them.

Bucks County Coun­cil un­for­tu­nately has no proper pol­icy in place to al­lo­cate bus ser­vices where needed.


Bot­trells Lane Chal­font St Giles

sup­ported the restora­tion of Geary’s Meadow and other en­vi­ron­men­tal group’s ac­tiv­i­ties, such as Friends of Holt­spur Bank and The Bea­cons­field So­ci­ety.

He was pas­sion­ate about the Old Town and took a keen in­ter­est in BO­TRA’s ac­tiv­i­ties. He also found time to found the Bea­cons­field Twinning As­so­ci­a­tion and to be a school gov­er­nor and trea­surer of nu­mer­ous or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Henry was one of life’s gen­tle­men, I never saw him angry or raise his voice.

Nev­er­the­less, you knew when he felt strongly about an is­sue. I am proud to have been able to call him my friend and it was a priv­i­lege to have known him.
