Background information to the community transport project (no longer running)
The transport committee was formed in 2007 to look at community transport within Heathfield. An accessibility audit was undertaken in 2007 and is available to the public via the Heathfield and Waldron Parish Council office, the library and on this website (please see below).
A ‘getting out and about in heathfield ' transport leaflet was published in 2007, see below, by the Heathfield and Waldron Parish Council and was an objective that came from the questionnaire that was organised by the Partnership. This was distributed to every household in the parish and is also available on this website.
The Heathfield Partnership, working together with Heathfield Youth Centre and Heathfield Community College are pleased to announce the success of the originally six month pilot transport project "the Youth Express", which is still continuing to run. The project, by providing transport, has enabled young people in rural areas around Heathfield to access some of the youth centre and colleges' afterschool provisions.
Funding for this transport project was provided by East Sussex County Council and was used to run a minibus to provide transport for students from rural areas. The service was free and available to all students. East Sussex County Council awarded this project a second grant in October 2009 which has enabled us to keep providing this vital transport.
A few clubs/projects are chosen for young people to access at the youth centre and the youth express was also used to provide transport for one-off trips and outings to Eastbourne skate park and leisure centre, Knockhatch, Hailsham bowling alley and Tunbridge Wells cinema, to name but a few.
