West Sussex Bus Services – Your Opinions?

#WestSussBus – finding out your views on the buses

We’ve just launched #WestSussBus – a long-term engagement project – to collect views, suggestions and ideas about local bus services. It’s on the West Sussex County Council (WSCC) engagement hub and here is the address: https://yourvoice.westsussex.gov.uk/westsussbus

The project has it’s own email address, too westsussbus@westsussex.gov.uk and the title #WestSussBus can be used as a hashtag for social media postings about local buses.

Please find attached information for circulation in your area. There’s a downloadable poster and two versions of an e-flyer.

As it’s a long-term project, there’s no end date, and it’s likely to be running for at least a year.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Many thanks,

Neighbourhood Watch – Burglary Prevention Campaign Launched

Credit Neighbourhood Watch

To help you be and feel safer at home, we are running through March our Think WIDE(N) burglary prevention campaign. At Neighbourhood Watch, we also believe neighbours keeping an eye out for each other is key to reducing burglary, so we’ve extended the WIDE acronym to WIDE(N)

  • W: WINDOWS: Keep your windows locked
  • I: INTERIOR: Put inside lights on a timer/smart bulb
  • D: DOORS: Double or deadlock your doors
  • E: EXTERIOR: Put outside lights on a sensor
  • (N): NEIGHBOURS: Keep an eye out for your neighbours

To learn more about WIDE(N) and burglary prevention measures, visit ourwatch.org.uk/thinkwiden.
