The special meeting to discuss the future of Denton’s bus service is to be held on 17th November. Representatives of both Denton and Alburgh Parish Councils will be meeting staff from Norfolk County Council and Anglian Bus. District Cllr. Murray Gray will also be there.
The November Parish Council meeting was told that bus users have raised a number of criticisms of the current, stop-gap, arrangements. The system works well on Tuesdays and Fridays when the taxi-bus brings passengers back from Harleston at a reasonable hour. On other days the wait in Harleston is too long. Switching the Tuesday service to Wednesdays, market day, would be sensible. Even more attractive would be a return to bringing the old 580 service back, serving Bungay and Harleston, even it was just for two days a week.
