The Future of our Buses

bus poster


Parwich is at risk of losing its bus services as we know them today.
Derbyshire County Council, faced with Government cuts, has to make savings and is consulting about a new network for its subsidised services. In order to preserve as much of the service as we have today, can people in the village complete a DCC questionnaire copies of which are in the Pump bus shelter.

It is vital for our village that we have a voice in making sure we retain services, especially for those who use the bus to shop, link in to the Swift service from Ashbourne to Derby and Uttoxeter or depend on it to get to the Royal Derby Hospital. (A taxi from the Royal Derby to Parwich costs in the region of £30.)

A significant number in Parwich will be affected if the bus service is radically altered leaving the elderly, teenagers, those who need it for work or hospital appointments or travelling further afield at a significant disadvantage.

The questionnaire can also be completed online at

But there are those without access to the Internet which is why there are hard copies in the Pump Shed. These have to be completed by December 14 and handed in at the library in Ashbourne or the mobile library in Parwich on December 1 or December 15. Alternatively, put the completed form through the letter box of Church Cottage (above the trough) and we will ensure they are handed in.

Could people be neighbourly and watch out for those who might like copies of the form.

Perhaps surprisingly, the questionnaire does not ask us what would encourage us to use the service or use it more frequently. I think it would be worthwhile adding your view to the questionnaire.
