- The 1700 bus from Seaton to Taunton will terminate at Culmstock at 1820 and not carry on to Wellington and Taunton.

 

There are no other changes and the service will continue to be supported exclusively by Devon County Council.

Bus Service 20

Parish Council

Several parishioners have contacted me about Bus No 20.  Somerset County Council is withdrawing its subsidy from the service.   

I have contacted Somerset County Council who has told me . . . 

There is only a slight change to service 20 as a result of the withdrawal of our funding, and this will only be implemented in the summer once the Colleges have broken up. The change is that West Buckland will be removed from the route, the service will continue to Wellington and Taunton. 

I contacted Devon County Council who said. . . 

We have no plans to reduce the service within Devon. In order to verify our ongoing passenger data we recently conducted a sample survey which confirmed that the service is generally well used, particularly the Honiton - Taunton section, and is at present capable of meeting our support criteria. If Somerset go ahead with their withdrawal, therefore, we shall seek operational savings which do not affect Devon passengers (such as withdrawing from West Buckland and reviewing the route round Wellington) but would otherwise aim to absorb the additional cost until further notice.  I hope our continuing commitment to the current level of service reassures Devon residents along the Service 20 route.

Fuel poverty in Devon is above the national average, with 1 in 5 rural households classed as fuel poor in the county. In recent years there has been a focus from central government to reduce fuel poverty by making grants available, however increasing fuel prices have meant that numbers in fuel poverty continue to rise.  Fuel poverty disproportionately affects older households, and rural districts of Devon where the housing stock is older and incomes are generally lower. In Devon 5,934 households (19%) spent more than 10% of their income on heating their homes – the benchmark of fuel poverty.  Source: Devon County Council Healthy Housing Needs Survey 2012

The one of a life time’s event, is to be held on Easter Sunday 27th March 2016, will be passing through your Parish.

The route is starting from Smeatharpe Stadium at 9.30am; will travel west, to the Honiton Show Ground, stopping for a lunch and then returning back to the stadium via an easterly path.

We are looking to attract upto 500 tractors for the run, to travel the 28 miles round route during the day. All number of makes of tractors will be present, from Allis Charmers to Zetor.

In celebration of the Road Run, a Grand Draw is being held to raise funds: the first prize being a 1958, vintage Massey Ferguson 35 petrol/TVO tractor; second is £100; third is £50; as well as many other donated prizes.

We hope to raise in excess of £10,000 from this non-profit making event, with all proceeds going directly to the charities above. All efforts to date have been volunteered, resources donated, any costs incurred have been non-profit bearing.

The route will be leafleted prior to the big day, informing all immediate households of the passing vintage traffic.

I would ask for all your support in this charitable event, I also hope every spectator will wave & enjoy the tractors safely passing by. It will be a day to remember in years to come.

Many thanks,
