Village's evening bus service welcomed

VILLAGERS can now venture into Hereford for an evening out safe in the knowledge they can get a bus back.

The 453 service from Fownhope will now call at the Courtyard on Edgar Street and the city railway station after leaving the village at 6.44pm.

Every Friday and Saturday the same service leaves the Courtyard at 10.55pm, returning to Fownhope by 11.25pm.

David Clark, chairman of Fownhope Parish Council, said: “Not only does this new service benefit a cross-section of the community, it also provides an excellent demonstration of parish councils working together.

This service gives youngsters the freedom to socialise in Hereford without their parents needing to ferry them around.”

He said villagers can now also enjoy monthly buses to Ledbury after the parish council teamed up with its counterparts in Dormington and Mordiford to apply for funding.

That bus link runs on the fourth Friday of each month.

If my view is worth a jot, I am of the opinion that this is good news but the other way round.
For those of us poor souls, bereft of hope and the will to live who reside here in Hereford in this holding pen that Jarvis has created for Britains Got bloody Talent, it'd be nice to pop to Fownhope, walk about without fear of being given a fixed penalty ticket for some minor misdemeanour and being taser'ed by the Constable for howling our annoyance outside the bloody Town Hall.
Id urge Mr Clarke of the Fownhope Parish Council to watch the film 'Field of bloody Dreams, get some drink and food in co's people will come. I will most definitely journey to Fownhope and have some welcome respite from this place thats more akin to the Village of the Damned rather than my home Hereford.

Bobby, you're starting to sound stressed again mate.
Dig a hole in the wrong place, and take a temazepam.
It'll be alright... Possibly...
