    This service is suitable only for pensioners making day trips to Winchester, so no wonder they think they can cut evening timetables."

BUS services in Colden Common could be scrapped in a bid to save money by Hampshire County Council.

The Brijan number 8 and the E1 and E2, which all serve the village, will be reviewed as the county council aims to save between £1.25 and £1.5m from public and transport spending.

The council aims to do this by 2015/16.

Passenger Transport Services believe there are a number of options to be considered including the reduction of Sunday services, services after 7pm and service frequencies.

A consultation is currently in place giving residents the chance to voice their opinions and an online survey can be completed by visiting survey.hants.gov.uk/consultation2014individuals.htm.

Alternatively the community centre will have paper versions and these can be submitted directly to the parish clerk or office.

For more information contact Debbie Harding on 01962 713700 or by email clerk@coldencommon.hants.gov.uk.
