I sent the following email at 23:08 the evening.
At the moment a number of the supporters of the Lune Bus Action Group are seeking staff.
Since the subsidies were removed from the Bus service in the Lune Valley, following which Stagecoach cancelled a substantial proportion of its services, the area has had problems in filling vacancies. Particularly among those who do not have their own transport.
Exacerbating this is that parking in and around Kirkby is not cost free.
We would like to set up a “Meet the Press” evening to provide an opportunity for businesses in the area to voice their feelings on how the bus situation between Lancaster and Kirkby is impacting the operation of their business and to make the press aware of our concerns.
If you are prepared to have someone represent you at such a gathering please let Duncan and I know. The most likely venue would be the Lunesdale Hall, Kirkby but we could twist the arm of Whittington Village Hall to accommodate us (with the bar open) at a minimal cost.
We would appreciate a return email confirming that you would consider sending someone to attend such a gathering. We would then see what can be arranged.
A suggestion as to the most convenient night of the week would be appreciated.
