The Salisbury Journal has launched a campaign to stop bus cuts in Wiltshire.

stop bus cuts.jpg-pwrt3As part of the campaign they have a petition on Change.org – find and sign it here if you thing bux services are important.

If you haven’t completed Wiltshire Council’s Bus Consultation Survey you can find it here.

Let friends and neighbours  know aboug the potential impact – the Devizes to Salisbury Service could disappear as it is one of the options.  Paper copies of the survey should be availabld on buses or at Council offices for those without internet access – probably those most likely to be affected.

This is a democratic process, whatever your views make them known.
