Public meeting set to discuss Hayling Ferry bus service

Have your say

CAMPAIGNERS are set discuss the possibility of a community-funded bus service to take people to the Hayling Island ferry..

Michael Evans, campaigner and activist on Hayling Island, will chair a meeting next month about the possibility of a service that goes back and forth to the Hayling Ferry.

Mr Evans said: ‘It would be useful for those without cars.

‘Hampshire County Council won’t subsidise Stagecoach or any other company to do this.

‘I think it would be good to have a 20-seater, that when it isn’t taking people to and from the Hayling Ferry, could be used elsewhere in the community.

‘The meeting is open to the public and it’s also a chance for people to raise any other concerns they have about the area.

‘Our guest speaker is Tony Berry, chairman of the Co-operative party in Portsmouth, and also director of Community Empowerment Limited Portsmouth.’

The meeting will take place at The Royal Shades pub, 29 Sea Front, on April 15 at 11am.
