Someone has to say it, enough of us talk about it. Whether we’re stood waiting for a bus, or we’re having a pint down the local, one issue keeps coming up every day – we want more buses. It’s purely common sense, if the developers at Whiteley had any serious thought of making the site a success you would have at least thought they’d work hard to get more buses to the precinct? Well unfortunately not, buses are on average two hours apart and they don’t even run on a Sunday! (Here is a link to the timetable) But there is one service that is desperately needed and it’s quite frankly disgusting how it was originally cut because it wasn’t “commercially viable”. It’s amazing how places like Queen Alexandra Hospital and Southampton General have buses going right to the door and yet that is something that is cut when it comes to Fareham Community Hospital.
Is Fareham Borough/Hampshire County Council and the bus companies waging war on the sick and the elderly residents of the Western Wards? I’ve contacted Friends of Fareham Community Hospital regarding their petition and I think that actually this socially necessary service needs to be reinstated, fast.
