373 Bus Service
Hazel Grove Councillors, Oliver Johnstone and Julian Lewis-Booth have launched a campaign to hear from residents what they think of the 373 Bus Route being withdrawn from service.The 373 provides a vital service from Hazel Grove to Stepping Hill giving elderly and vulnerable residents the means to attend hospital appointments.
SEMMMS Construction Survey
When I was elected to represent our area, one of main issues I heard on the door step in Hazel Grove was the construction of SEMMMS.I have therefore decided to launch this survey allowing residents in Hazel Grove to let me know how the construction has affected them and what lessons the Council and construction company can learn for future projects.Every response will be shared with the Council and I hope to make this investment can ensure lessons are learnt.
Save Lloyds Bredbury
I was made aware last week that the Lloyds Bank in Woodley is going to be closing its doors in July.I think it is crucial we ensure this bank stays in our local area, I will therefore be writing to the Chief Executive of Lloyds Banking Group asking that they urgently reconsider this decision as well as launching this petition.If you sign up, you will receive updtes on the campaign, I will also ensure the petition is sent to Lloyds.If you know someone who will be affected by this, but isn't online they can call my Office on 0161 427 0660.
Save Romiley NatWest
I was made aware late this week (starting 18.04.2016) that the Romiley, NatWest branch would be closing along with the branch in Cheadle.On Friday 22nd April I sent a letter to the Chief Executive of NatWest asking that they reconsider this decision as many residents use the branch. I am concerned that many branches are closing down across the country claiming that services are moving online, even though many residents don't use online banking and do in fact require a face to face service.
Save the 394 Bus
The 394 bus which serves residents, who need to get to Stepping Hill Hospital and surronding areas is potentially being scrapped Monday-Friday.William has already written to, Stockport Council, Derbyshire Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and High Peak Buses asking that they look very carefully at retaining this service as it crucial for so many in our community.The 394 provides a vital lifeline to the most vulnerable in our community and seeing its services cut would have wide reaching consequences.
