Worsening bus services

From 27 July the 402 service between Tunbridge Wells and Bromley will terminate at Dunton Green.

Some time ago the Tunbridge Wells - Ashford service was cut back to Tenterden.

This year the 6A route between Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone was terminated at West Peckham.  The loss of two buses an hour between Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone is compensated  partially by the provision of an extra bus on the route between the two towns via Tonbridge.

Pacemaker Update

An appointment with the heart failure nurse today elicited the good news that my heart is working towards the bottom of  the 'normal' range for heart activity, an improvement of over 100% pre my medication and pacemaker implant.

Two months ago  I had a pacemaker/defibrillator fitted.  I am making good progress and the heart failure nurse is hoping to discharge me from her care next week.  the care I have received at Pembury and Maidstone hospitals, the heart failure  nurse and my GP has been excellent.

General Election 2017

How will the results pan out?  A few suggestions:

1.  The UKIP vote will collapse

2.  The Conservatives will win an overall majority of between 80 - 100 seats.

3.  Labour will lose seats.

4. The Liberal Democrats will win a few seats.

5. The SNP will lose some seats.

Update:  3 out of 5  :)

Two casual vacancies

Rusthall Parish Council has nine members.  However two have resigned creating casual vacancies to be filled by the remaining councillors choosing from people who apply rather than have the expense of a by-election. Will there by a mad rush of applicants?  I have my doubts.
