Letter to the editor | Hamlet of Shripney

Dear Editor,

 

I wonder if the hamlet of Shripney is even on the map.

 

Every half-hour 24/7 buses pass here to and from the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ factories at Chichester and Bognor Regis, though not for Shripney residents.

 

Shripney residents are on a No 66 Compass bus route which has a two-and-a-half hourly so-called service.

 

We only get that because there is a school on the route.

 

We exist on a flood plain in Shripney and often the bus can’t come through Shripney because it is flooded due to flooding.

 

We were closed for two days before Christmas. The first bus the day before Christmas Eve was the 10.15am from Bognor Regis to Barnham, Yapton, Walberton and back to Bognor Regis.

 

Flooding means we haven’t had a bus since January 27 and the next one should be on March 16. We have bus passes but no bus for nearly two months.

 

The hamlet of Shripney on the A29 is up the creek without a paddle.

 

Doris Sumpter,
Marigolds Residential Park,
Shripney Road,
North Bersted
