Dear Parish Clerk,

It is with a very heavy heart that I must tell you that we have decided that all Villager services will be suspended from Monday next. We have not wanted to do this, for the sake of our isolated passengers who depend on our services, but the government advice is getting stronger by the day that we must all avoid contact with other people particularly the elderly and vulnerable who make up 95% of our passengers (and 75% of our drivers). 

We feel that this step is necessary to protect our passengers and drivers and to try to slow the spread of the disease. We will be putting a notice on our website, as well as letting as many passengers as we can know by phone of the suspension but should be most grateful if you could let your residents know by notices, newsletter or by putting a notice on your bus stop.We are very aware that this suspension will hit older people in villages particularly hard as so many rely on us for their needs. We would urge you to consider community support schemes, as many are doing, to provide practical help at this difficult time.

We will, of course, let you know when we plan to restart services, hopefully in the not too distant future.

Kind regards,

Keith Gowing

Chairman

The Villager
