Community organiser Ian Huddleston received feedback whilst speaking to Dinnington residents that the bus route to Rotherham Town Centre had been changed, it no longer went through High Nook Road.
This was isolating many people, especially older people who then struggled to get to a bus into town. An open day was then put on at High Nook Community Centre due to the feedback. Members of the council and a local councillor was invited to answer residents’ questions.
The local council then spoke to the bus company. through working together with the councillor, Rotherham Council, the bus company and Rotherham Federation, a change in the bus route was achieved for the local residents.
This was taken from our quarterly newsletter for Summer 2019.
