United Easebourne Magazine – Editor wanted

United Easebourne Magazine are looking for a new Editor to take over the role of pulling together this community focussed magazine from July 2023 onwards.

Tina and Gavin, the current editors have been doing the role as volunteers for the last 7 years but feel it’s time for someone else to take on the challenge! It’s a very rewarding role, sharing news and stories about what’s happening in our community, its people and its businesses.

Tina tells us it takes around 3 days in a month, split over the month of course and is all done from home. It doesn’t have to be done by one person, so maybe it’s something you think you could share with someone? If being an editor or roving reporter is something you’ve always fancied having a go at then maybe this is your opportunity!

To find out more and to have a chat about what’s involved, please get in touch with us by email or phone.

West Sussex County Council – Bus Service Consultation

Enhanced Partnership Statutory Stakeholder Consultation

Dear Stakeholder,

In March 2021, the government published a new National Bus Strategy (Bus Back Better) which sets out its vision to dramatically improve bus services in England, reverse the shift in journeys away from public transport as a result of Covid-19 and encourage passengers back to buses.

Central to the strategy is the creation of Enhanced Partnerships, where local authorities, bus operators and other key stakeholders work together to develop and implement bus service improvements for local communities. The West Sussex Enhanced Partnership will set out how we will deliver the outcomes of our Bus Service Improvement Plan, published in October 2021 following engagement with the public, operators, and other key stakeholders.

Further to this engagement, we would now like to hear from organisations and individual stakeholders who have an interest in making bus services work better.

You can access the consultation questionnaire and supporting documents via the link below.

Please share your views by midnight on Tuesday 3 January 2023.
