RUGBY people are invited to a meeting next week to discuss the effect of cuts to bus services in the town.

Warwickshire County Council’s Communities Overview and Scrutiny Committee meets on Thursday 12 April. Items for discussion include a review of the impact of reductions to services.

The committee is made up of a cross-party group of councillors who scrutinise Ccuncil services and ensure that it keeps its promises.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend the meeting and give their views.

Cllr John Whitehouse, chairman of the committee, said: “This meeting is an opportunity for the public to feed back on decisions made that affect their local bus services.

“Faced with budget reductions, we have to be realistic and accept that the county council cannot support the service in the same way as before but this is an opportunity to check that the council has made the right decisions in the routes that it has prioritised and it is important that we know what impact the changes are having on residents.

“We welcome the input of residents at the meeting which will take place at Shire Hall, Warwick at 10am on the 12th of April. We urge anyone with a view on the bus services in their area to come along and share their experience.”
