New Year’s Day bus services

Ref Buses Services on New Year’s Day (letter in the Herald, November 30)Cuckmere Community Bus Ltd will be running two services on the 1st January 2013.

The service 126 will operate from Seaford to Eastbourne via Alfriston, Polegate and the DGH.

We will also be operating our service 50 from Heathfield to Eastbourne via Hailsham and Polegate.

We ran route 50 for the first time last New Year’s Day after we realised that without our help, both Heathfield and Hailsham would be without a connection to Eastbourne.

We would like to bring to your attention, that all our routes, which operate on 363 days of the year, are driven by volunteers who are willing to give up their time to provide much needed public transport which would not otherwise be available.
