WITHDRAWAL OF 841 BUS
SERVICE FROM STAFFORD TO TIXALL & GT
HAYWOOD The Parish Council has written
to the County Council, 14.3.19, to no avail.
The new contract has been
given to ARRIVA from the end of April, this is
a service subsidised by the County Council, or
in this case, probably the developer of the
new houses by Stafford Crematorium.
The problem is that
only 2 passengers from Brancote Cottages
regularly use the service, other passengers
are from the Haywoods.
The developer has
paid ARRIVA to provide a half hourly loop bus
service from the new houses by the crematorium
to Stafford. This will run along Tixall Rd
from Stafford to the Crematorium, then up
Blackheath Laneand back along Hydrant Way
(when it is open) to Tixall Rd. There is no
time to extend the service to Gt Haywood
before the next bus is due.
We would like a
limited bus service to Tixall and Ingestre -
one bus to Stafford in the morning, one mid
day, and one about 5.30 to 6pm for people that

from the villages to the GP or Dentist in Gt
The service is also used
