£2 Fare Cap Extended

On 31 October 2023 Transport Secretary Mark Harper said:

Buses are the most popular form of public transport and help people across the country get to work, attend medical appointments and see loved ones - that's why we are extending the 'Get Around for £2' scheme all the way to 31 December 2024. Extending the £2 bus fare cap has only been possible with the redirected HS2 funding secured by this Government making the right long-term decisions for a brighter future, delivering immediate benefits and helping people save money.

Volunteer Drivers Urgently Needed

As a very busy volunteer organisation we are urgently seeking to increase the team of drivers for our 16-seater minibuses. Our timetabled services operate in the rural Cuckmere Valley area, plus town services in Hailsham and Seaford.

Full training will be given, and you may drive as many or as few shifts as you wish in any month. You'll need a D1 classification on your licence.

Operations Director steps down

We are sad to report the resignation of Kevin Fryer as Operations Director effective from 26 September. Kevin has a full-time job which has grown significantly since he joined us in 2020 and, understandably, he no longer has the time to devote to Cuckmere Buses. He will be sorely missed. We wish him well.

Grants Awarded

We are very pleased to share our news that Cuckmere Buses have recently received generous grants from Seaford Town Council and from Willingdon & Jevington Parish Council towards the operation of their services for 2023.

Cuckmere Buses is a charity and all drivers and officers are volunteers. Donations and grants such as these are vital to the continued operation of our services.
