Save the No. 12 Bus
Once again, Brighton Hill residents are being threatened with the loss of a vital service because of Conservative County Council cuts.
For many residents, their local bus is a lifeline. Elsie – who has lived in Basingstoke for over 60 years – uses the number 12 to get around everywhere; for trips to the shops, to pick up her pension and her prescription.
For Elsie – and many older residents like her – losing the number 12 bus would mean losing her independence and the contact she has with her church group – and the friends she has made there who she thinks of as family.
That’s why local Labour Councillors are opposing the cuts. For the County Council, cutting the number 12 bus means losing a few zeros on a balance sheet. For Elsie, and many others like her, it means so much more than that.
