Services to Eastbourne
A monthly shopping service to Eastbourne with a pick up of around 10:00 and leaving Eastbourne at 15:00 will run during the Summer months. A flat return fare of £12.00 return applies from all supporting parishes.
Wealdlink is a door-to-door service and therefore pick-up and return times will of necessity vary from week to week dependent on the number of passengers booked and subsequent route. The Service will start at 10:00 and complete all journeys by 15:00 daily. It is our policy to ring on the morning of travel to confirm an estimated time of arrival at your door. PLEASE DO YOUR BEST NOT TO KEEP THE BUS WAITING as it is unfair to other passengers.
