WELL done to the Holmfirth pensioners in their weekend protest about the cutting of their vital bus service (Examiner November 19).
Chucking their sticks in front of the buses was a brilliant strategy! Let’s hope it draws immediate attention to their plight and Metro realises that providing good service is a vital part of profit!
The Government and council are providing schemes and initiatives for older people to get out and about, keep fit and maintain hobbies and interests.
The nationwide free bus service in April is all part of this scheme. Without a good bus service nationally the scheme will flounder. Keep going Holmfirthers; you can win!
