Dear Parish,
We are consulting you as part of a formal consultation by BT to remove public payphones across the country.
We have a duty to consult the relevant Parish or Town Councils where the public telephones are located.
Therefore I would be grateful if you could provide a response directly to me no later than the 10th January 2017.
Email: roseanne.lillywhite@southandvale.gov.uk

If you have any further queries please contact BT directly on btp.authorisation.team@bt.com

The new replacement 131 Bus service

The new replacement 131 service begins this Friday July 22nd BUT!-you must be a member to ride this bus. Membership is free and open to all temporary or permanent village residents.

To register email DVTGbus@gmail.com or contact any Parish Councillor and we will do it for you!

Please pass on this information to anyone who may not receive it in another way.

The new timetable will be printed out shortly but, in short, the bus picks up in North Moreton at 10.37 preceeded by South Moreton at 10.33 ( and the Orchard Centre Didcot at 10.05) dropping people at Wallingford Hospital and then the Market place.

The return bus leaves Wallingford Market at 13.15 and then stops in the Moretons at 13.33 and 13.37 respectively before going in to the Orchard Centre in Didcot.

This gives us one bus into Didcot at least on a Friday afternoon and a return journey to Wallingford.

Obviously this is not ideal, but it does at least give some transport options! And we are still working on it……
