Hello, the parish councils know that for many residents (especially those who don’t drive), accessing social activities in neighbouring villages, going to the shops or even visiting loved ones in nursing homes, can be really difficult given that we have a limited public transport service.
So, the local councils (Pitstone, Marsworth, Ivinghoe and Cheddington) are gathering information about the types of activities and places that you feel you would like to be able to reach, to assess whether a community minibus service in the local villages would help to break down these barriers. It may be able to offer some services where it collects residents from their homes, or some set routes.
We need as many people as possible to complete the survey so that we can investigate providing the most suitable service. You can complete the survey online here: http://pitstone.co.uk/cbsurvey (open until Friday 1 November). Alternatively you can complete the printed paper survey which will be hand delivered to all homes in Pitstone over the course of the next few weeks and return it to the contact details at the end of the survey, by Friday 1 November 2019 (you can also print a paper copy from this link: community bus survey final ). Other parishes will be publishing the survey in their parish magazines and/or delivering leaflets and/or publishing on their websites, so that we can reach as many residents as possible.
The parish council will provide details of the results, and any updates on the project, via PPP and our social media channels/website.
We take care of your data, and you can find details of our privacy notice & policies online at www.pitstone.co.uk.
Thank you for your help.
