Alne Singers Concert - 11th July
Public transport for Aldwark and Flawith (and other local villages)
Many people will be aware that at the end of April, Bus Service 29 was cut back to a single return journey each Monday to Friday to York College during term time only.
There is now no service suitable for people working in York, for shoppers or for those needing to get to York Hospital.
Local residents in the villages of Brafferton, Helperby, Myton, Flawith, Tholthorpe and Aldwark organised a petition (in the form of individual household letters) which was presented to the County Council on 29 May and which called on the County Council to fulfil its Legal Duty of properly identifying the transport needs of the communities and then finding appropriate ways of meeting those needs.
Out of the 129 letters submitted, 14 came from households in Aldwark and Flawith representing 42 people. A response is still awaited from North Yorkshire County Council.
It is understood that at the same time as this petition was being organised, a second petition was produced and presented to the County from Aldwark village signed by approximately 15 people. It obviously makes sense for the organisers of the two petitions to work together on this issue. Therefore, if the organiser of the second petition would like to ring 0750 219 3880 and speak with Barry Connor, further steps can be discussed towards restoring the lost public transport for Aldwark and Flawith.
