Please don’t stop the 27 bus service

First published in Letters

I AM writing to ask Centrebus to please reconsider the plan to stop the No 27 bus service from going round Bexton Road and Beggar Man’s Lane, (Guardian, February 6 edition).

There are many people who cannot drive anymore for various reasons, including my husband, and it means they can have a little bit of independence by travelling into Knutsford and Macclesfield.

Would it be possible to have one bus travel during the morning, returning a couple of hours later, e.g. 10.03am from the Post Box in Beggar Man’s Lane, and 12.25pm from Knutsford, plus one in the afternoon?

It’s a bad time of the year, and perhaps there will be more travellers when the weather improves. I know a lot of people would be happy to just travel a little instead of not at all.

Please don’t stop the bus service.

EILEEN BURRELL Leycester Road, Knutsford

Conflicting information at present. CEC say the service has been registered commercially by GHA/Vale Travel whilst GHA have said it is a contracted service.
