LOCAL BUS SERVICE: The Parish Councils of Peasmarsh, Beckley and Northiam started to fund a new 313 bus service at 9.03 from Northiam to Rye in April of this year for a trial period of six months. This time is now up and the three Parish Councils have agreed to continue to jointly fund this for a further six months. If you use this service you could be of great help by making a note of any journey you take, together with the number of passengers travelling on the 313, where you boarded and alighted and the date and time of your journey. Please keep a note of all or any journeys you make between January and the middle of February, and then email the details of The three Parish Councils are very keen to know how well this service is being used before deciding on further funding and this information will help in any discussions we have with East Sussex County Council.
