School transport “Consultation”. Cholsey and Benson BEWARE

You may remember that last summer the County Council attempted to withdraw bus passes and, more insidiously, buses from children who live just inside the three mile from school limit.

Many local parents spent hundreds of hours working on appeals to get the attempt over-turned and fortunately they were successful.

The council is now trying to re-introduce this policy by attempting to get walking routes to school reclassified as safe.

I will be going along to the Education Scrutiny Committee with some parents to let the council know how we feel. The safety of local children has to be seen as paramount and we cannot allow the saving of relatively small amounts of money to stand in the way of this.
