No bus route for us in Sidley

I was pleased to note that Brett McLean has echoed Paul Lendon’s endorsement of the No21 bus route and having used it, it does what it says on the tin – connect Bexhill town centre with Silverhill and deserved thanks to Stagecoach.

It does not, however, serve the people of Sidley.

No surprise there then!

To those not topographically familiar with north west Bexhill my address is near All Saints Church and the Rose&Crown,a good 15 to 20-minute walk to the nearest stops at King Offa Way/London Road or Glovers House

Why does this bus not come up London Road and stop at the Pelham and continue up Wrestwood Road to The Gateway Road?

If this is because Wrestwood Road is not a designated bus route then somebody needs to extract digit and make it so.

I am sure this would generate more use to the benefit of both the people of Sidley and the bus company.

Readers may like to note that from Silverhill there is good connectivity to the Conquest Hospital and the rest of Hastings.
