Bus Service: It looks like we will have a 349 bus service on bank holiday weekends with four outward and four return journeys. The dates are East Sunday, (April 16), the Sunday preceding mayday (April 30), Spring Bank Holiday weekend (May 28), Summer bank holiday weekend (August 28). A lot of hard work has been put in to raise the funds for this service which will take in Hastings <Westfield, Ewhurst, Staplecross, Boidiam, Sandhurst, and Hawkhurst. When I get the times for the service it will be in the village voice and, hopefully, the bus stops.
