Gas Leak – If you think you have a gas leak or can smell gas, leave the house and phone the National Gas Emergencies number immediately on 0800 111 999. If you’re at home, and you can do it safely, turn off your gas supply. The gas mains tap should be beside your gas meter.
Electricity – Who can I contact to report a power cut? If you experience a power cut, simply call 105 for free. 105 is the new nationwide number that will put you through to your local electricity network operator – the company that manages the cables, wires and substations that bring electricity into local homes and businesses.
There’s a lot of good news about Public Transport in the Parish!
Bus services: as reported in the previous edition of the Dragon, the parish council has been fortunate enough to gain funding to subsidise two new bus services.
A monthly service will operate on the fourth Friday of each month to Ledbury. The service will travel from Fownhope, through Mordiford and up to the A438 via Dormington. The bus will stop at Mordiford at 9.42am, Sufton Rise at 9.44am and Dormington at 9.46am and will depart from Ledbury at 12.35pm – the cost will be £3.70 return unless you have a bus pass in which case you will travel for free. The service is due to start on 23rd November, just in time for Christmas shopping!
Unfortunately, due to lack of support, the late night service from The Courtyard to the Parish has been terminated
Ross on Wye Service.
You are reminded that a bus service operates between Sufton Rise and Ross on Wye via Mordiford and Fownhope on the second Thursday of each month. It leaves Mordiford at 9.32am and returns by 12.35pm. This service is proving very popular.
