Route improvements to the 500 bus timetable

Windsor Rackham, coordinator of LIVE, has informed me that from September 2nd, 2109 the 500 bus timetable has route improvements. Windsor says,

The major change for Lightwater Road residents is that each service will now only travel once along this road. The stop for the Village and the Camberley direction will be on the Colville Gardens side of the road, while the stop for Windlesham and Sunningdale will be from the bus shelter side. Please note the timetable changes carefully as one or two services may be slightly earlier than you expect.

The change is a result of discussions with the Windlesham Parish Council, Surrey County Council, and LIVE. Your local Councillors are currently discussing with us the future of public transport in this area and all views are open for discussion. If you have any points you would like to raise, please talk to your Councillors or pop-in to LIVE on a Saturday morning in the Library Meeting Room. Timetables are available from the Library, Post Office, village shops, and LIVE on Saturday mornings.

Lightwater looks lovely lit-up

Awful alliteration, I know, I just couldn’t resist it.

Lightwater’s double switch – on event on Saturday, firstly the Windlesham Parish Council Christmas tree in the memorial gardens, with carol singing led by All Saints’ Church vicar, Rev David Sigsworth.

The assembled audience then moved to Lightwater’s village square for the switch-on of the Christmas Lights in the Square, sponsored by Co-op Food, Randalls Coffee and Wine Bar, and the Lightwater Business Association.

We enjoyed the odd combination of mulled wine and samosa. Here are a few photos of the events. Click on images to enlarge.
