Victory in our long running fight to ensure our service families get the bus pass they are entitled to 17.2.23
We is delighted to announce that the council have finally agreed to our demands to re-assess the route from Wattisham Airbase to Ringshall School. They did this during half term and, as we told them the would, they found sections of the route dangerous. This means that pupils living on or around the base can now apply for a bus pass on safety grounds.
Quotes from the article in the East Anglian Daily Times which reported our victory;
Rachel Hood, Cabinet Member for Education, SEND and Skills, said: “It is good news that a positive outcome has been found and eligible children will now receive free bus travel to school.
Maria Rusivakula’s four-year-old son was among the children from Wattisham Airfield who were turned away from the bus last week. “We’re going to be here for a couple of years, and this is really going to help my son’s independence.”
“This is wonderful news,” said Mr Gough. “Families will now be able to apply for a bus pass on safety grounds.”
Front page news - Our fight for a bus pass for our families living on or near the base has made the newspaper. 11.2.23
It's been a week of hard campaigning at Ringshall School. We have been in contact with many high profile figures in the community, the council and the army to support our campaign to get the route from the Flying Station to Ringshall school declared unsafe. If this happens then our children will get the bus pass they need and are entitled to.
Our local MP, the head of the local authority and the defence minister are among the many influential figures we have contacted to support our cause. And now we have made the paper with a front page headline and a wonderfully supportive double page spread. If this doesn't help the council to see reason, I don't know what will.
