Councillor Michael Hoy writes here about a new County Council policy:
“With effect from September 2015 Essex County Council have changed the policy on Home to School Transport for new pupils meaning parents or carers will have to pay themselves if their children go to Sweyne-Park School even though they may live over 3 miles away and would currently be entitled to free transport. Sweyne-Park is the Catchment School for Hullbridge and currently has 248 Hullbridge children over the years 7-11…
…..I have opposed and remain opposed to this policy and will be campaigning against it. I will post on here proposals for how the campaign will be formulated later….
…..The Echo will be taking a photograph at 3.30pm on Monday by the bus stop in Ferry Lane by the Car Park. As many people as possible are needed to be in it.
