AT 4.30pm on September 30 passengers were on a No 7 bus due to leave Reading

AT 4.30pm on September 30 passengers were on a No 7 bus due to leave Reading for Nettlebed when an inspector got on and said that the service wouldn’t run because there was no driver, it was stated at a Nettlebed Parish Council meeting on Monday. “We have had complaints about the bus service before,” said one member.

Mr F O Hoar, 70, has just retired from Stuart Turner after 55 years’ service. On leaving school, he joined as an apprentice model engineer in 1911 and after serving his term of apprenticeship, stayed with the firm through both world wars. Mr Hoar, who has lived in Henley all his life, was presented with a cheque from the directors to mark his retirement.

At the September meeting of Wargrave Parish Council complaints were considered from parishioners concerning footpaths and it was decided to write to Wokingham Rural District Council concerning obstructions. Lord Remnant, the chairman, said that in fairness to all concerned he had to point out that footpaths were not so much used now and in consequence undergrowth quickly took possession.
