Changes to Nayland’s Bus Service - update 13 February

On 17th January Chambers Buses announced on their website a consultation on a major reduction of bus service 84 and introduction of a new service 784.  Following concerns of residents a meeting was held with local parish councilors, county councilor, MP and Chambers; some amendments were offered for a trial period from 29th March until the end of the July School Term.  Details include:

  • Two services each day would be run through all the 4 villages during term time AND school holidays.
  • Assington would retain a daily service because of the particular distance and lack of safe access on foot to the main road.
  • Nayland and Stoke by Nayland would have a ‘shopping bus’ once per week.
  • Additional bus stops on the A134 will be added in Leavenheath and Nayland to the regular two hourly services during the day.

The group plan to meet again at the end of April to review usage of buses on this route.  This trial timetable will be put up by the bus stops and will be widely circulated in the villages. Details will also be found on the Chambers website.

Public Access Defibrillators     
in Nayland           

There are TWO Public Access Defibrillators now located in Nayland – on the outside wall of Nayland Fire Station and on the outside wall of Nayland Village Hall.

Please familiarise yourself with these locations and let your friends, family and neighbours know too.

Always dial 999 in an emergency, the call handler will know there is a defibrillator nearby and will provide the access code if needed.

‘Minutes matter’ when it comes to a sudden cardiac arrest. Public Access Defibrillators can save vital time whilst waiting for the emergency services to arrive and can dramatically improve a person’s chances of survival when administered within a few minutes.
