Buses: There are no Sunday bus services now for the village but Stagecoach runs a 349 service on a Bank Holiday the next one being 31st August but to find this out you have to see Stagecoach website or the Traveline. What a way to run, not a lot of people can access a website and sometimes Traveline is not at it’s best. Why could not East Sussex County Council tell Stagecoach to put it on the 349 bus timetables, it is the Council who put in the money to help run the service on a Bank Holiday?
