The Conservative run County Council have released proposals to cut bus services to and from Ockford Ridge from two per hour to just one. With a lack of amenities in the area many local people rely on the buses to get to shops or the doctors. With a Town Council election coming up, local people can take this opportunity to send a message to the Conservatives that they want things done differently. Our candidate, Ollie Purkiss, will push to keep this vital service running if elected on February 11th.
The proposal is to withdraw the 72 service which connects Ockford Ridge to Godalming and Guildford via Meadrow and replace it with a diverted service 46 from Aldershot, which will run to Guildford via Farncombe and Binscombe. Passengers who want to go to the Mill Medical Practice will have to change at Godalming and get the hourly service 70.
