River Trip: leaving HVH at 9.30am

Regular users of local bus services will notice that the recently installed bus shelter on the South side of Wood Ways (the infant school side of the road) has acquired a new concrete floor.
This results from the efforts of Parish Councillor, John Wheeler, and local maintenance man, Jim Ayers, who prepared the ground, shifted about a ton of hardcore and then poured and crafted the concrete floor — all on one of the hottest days of the year!
Aficionados of such concrete craftsmanship will note that the new floor has a rather elegant roll-off towards the entrance. This is to help shed water that would otherwise tend to accumulate inside the shelter, due to splashes from passing vehicles as they drop into water-filled pot holes in the road nearby.
The Parish Council commissioned the work at a total cost of £100. Thanks to John and Jim's efforts, this compares very favourably with the quote from contractors, which came in at £900.
