The Community Bus

The Community Bus

The Community Bus continues to flourish and runs 3 times each week to local shopping centres, it has become a well used and essential part of our village life.


To ensure its successful continuation

We urgently require more volunteer drivers

To qualify to become a driver you require a full D1 Class approved driving licence, be within the ages of 25 and 70 and be prepared to drive 2 or 3 mornings each month. You determine the mornings you drive.

Full KCC approved driver training will be given.

If you could spare a couple of hours 2 or 3 times each month it would be much appreciated.

Interested?? Please call Fiona Moody on 07551 454702 or email

Mini Bus Hire

As well as the traditional service the bus provides to its parishioners, it is also available for hire to any registered business, club or society, associated within the parishes of Hartlip, Stockbury, South Green and Yelsted ONLY, although you will need to provide the driver and fuel. It is a 17 seater (including the driver) with wheelchair access, so ideal for a group needing to travel out for a whole or part of a day. The hire rates are very competitive and are as detailed:

Morning, Afternoon or Evening £60 + Fuel

Full Day £100 + Fuel

A £250 returnable deposit providing T's & C's are met is also required for ALL HIRES full or part day

If you believe this is the solution you have been looking for, please call me on the bus phone line 07551-454702 or send me an email and I will do my best to accommodate your needs.
