The Blackheath area has had a bus stop outside the Orchard Baptist church for decades. It is a popular bus stop for people from Ash Grove, Gosfield Road, Chestnut Ave, Blackheath to catch a bus to the town centre.
So for decades we, the residents have had to stand in the rain, cold, and snow during winter, and hot sun in the summer, waiting for a bus.
After Councillor Dave Harris ran a campaign for a bus shelter, he managed to get the County Council to fit a new shelter to protect bus users from the elements. The new bus shelter has been named "Baptist Church" which is brilliant.
Here Martyn Warnes and Cllr Dave Hariis celebrate the new bus stop.
