BUS: Service will be stopped

May we, through the medium of your newspaper, advise the residents of the estates around Sandringham Drive in Blyth that the Arriva bus service X13 will no longer be available from early September.

In future, residents who need to use a bus into Blyth or Newcastle will need to walk to South Newsham Road, which can be over a mile away for many.

We have already written to Arriva customer services to express concern, but as yet await a response.

One letter alone will not carry much weight in an attempt to reverse this decision, so we would advise other concerned residents to complain too.

Mr and Mrs R Ross
