Vaccination rollout and bus pass relaxation – no off peak for pass-holders

Credit West Sussex County Council

Please help us spread the message about the relaxation of the concessionary bus pass rules so people can get to early morning vaccination appointments. They can now travel for free in West Sussex before 9.30am. Concessionary bus pass holders can currently travel free of charge in West Sussex, off-peak – which is weekdays 9.30am-11pm and all day on weekends and bank holidays: now, due to this temporary relaxation, it will also allow them to travel for free before 9.30am.

More information about the county council’s bus pass scheme is available here.

Midhurst Recycling Centre Petition successful!

Midhurst Recycling Centre is no longer under threat of closure and there will also be no reduction in opening hours. Although the bustling Midhurst Centre is the smallest out of the 11 centres in West Sussex it has to cover a wider rural area and its closure would have had a massive impact on the community with longer journeys and the potential for more fly-tipping.  

Dr Kate O’Kelly who is a West Sussex Councillor represents our area and she organized a petition which received over 3,000 signatures and growing. This petition which was heavily supported by local people and organizations has resulted in West Sussex deciding to keep our recycling centre open.
