Have your say

TRANSPORT chiefs are hoping to encourage people to switch from their cars to greener ways of travel and are bidding for £5m of funding to help achieve this.

I know a few friends’ families trying to get a house only to find they are beaten to it by people who buy houses cheap and do them up to rent out.

I blame the estate agents as they have lists of people.

There have been two houses near us which property developers were looking at before the ‘For Sale’ sign went up.

Hence they bought them. The young couples didn’t stand a chance even though they inquired and wanted one.

I feel sorry for them.

WE have organised a summer fair on Saturday, July 9 to raise money to replace a picnic table in East Pines Park in Anchorsholme that was recently vandalised.

If anyone has any items they would like to donate for our bric-a-brac stall, please contact me on (01253) 826679 or email me on cllr.Paul.Galley@blackpool.gov.uk

The summer fair starts at 12pm and finishes at 4pm and everyone is invited.

The Friends of East Pines Park, of which I’m secretary, have booked the Circus School, the Park School Band, a bouncy castle, and a falconer. We will have donkey rides and various stalls.

The excellent team at Blackpool Parks are painting a track so we can have the egg and spoon race etc. So if anyone wants to donate, volunteer or just come down for the day you will be very welcome.

THOUGH I feel for the people of Staining with their bus service (number 15) being stopped during the evening, I would like to draw attention to another service.

People used to be able to catch the number 9 from Cleveleys on a Sunday morning at about 7.30am to 7.45am, and then the first bus available became 7am meaning people had to catch that bus as they are only hourly, and the next bus was too late to get them to work.

However, the faceless powers that we have decided to axe the 7am number 9, meaning the first bus from Cleveleys is now 8am. What do the workers do now? How do they get to work for 8am when there is not a bus to get them there?

They cannot say this was not a viable bus route because I’ve caught that bus several times and there were always the same people travelling. Will there be some other form of transport put on to get the workers there?

The Government wants to get people back to work – how will this be possible when there’s no transport to get them there?
