  • TfL consulting again to withdraw the 13 bus route

    The latest proposals are very similar to those rejected last year, but now involve renumbering the 82 as 13 before dropping the old 13 route. The full consultation is at https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/buses/routes-13-82-113-139-189.
  • HGS Community Learning Network

    The 'HGS Community Learning Network' was launched on July 10th. This is an exciting local initiative to bring learners and teachers together, to help residents find out more about the various clubs and activities happening in the Suburb and for teachers, leaders & organisers to let residents know what they have to offer. Residents can search for local classes and courses at hgs.org.uk/learning. Teachers can get more information by contacting learning@hgs.org.uk
  • Restoration of Central Square Flower Beds

  • Your chance to get super fast broadband in the Suburb, north of A1

    Most streets north of Falloden Way between Westholm and Gurney Drive have slow internet. BT have no plans to upgrade to high speed fibre broadband - they say it's uncommercial. Mike Freer MP and some affected residents have found a way together, residents can make it happen.
