Following a campaign carried out by local councillors in Newhaven with hundreds of residents signing a petition, Newhaven Liberal Democrats have welcomed the new school bus service that will serve Seahaven Academy. The new 492 that will serve Denton and Newhaven and 494 service that will serve Satldean and Peacehaven will make a safer route for the children to access the school safely. A hard fought campaign rescued the service which in May was set to be cancelled. Councillors MacCleary and Macleod both recognised how important these services were to the community and refused to give up.

Councillor Sean Macleod “ The news from the County Council is so welcome and it was really a tough campaign to try and get the bus services reinstated. Just back in May we were told the money wasn’t there and that the services were going to be axed. We knew the money was there and this has proven that we were right all along.

We want to thank residents for working with us, signing the petition and raising their concerns. People power can win; we have shown the county council that we will promote children's safety and not give up.
