PORTSMOUTH & SOUTHSEA'S No.1 for ARTS, CULTURE & LIFESTYLE

Hayling Ferry Saved

In response to our last post regarding the cancellation of funding for the Hayling Island Ferry we are pleased to let you know that the service is no longer under threat – PCF has been notified by Cllr Jason Fazackarley that PCC will not be cutting the subsidy. Cllr Fazackarley said:

“It [the ferry] is saved, I have removed this [the proposed cut] as an offered saving by officers so Portsmouth contribution towards the ferry operation will remain unchanged. I cannot speak for any changes that the County Council may decide to make but Portsmouth City Council will NOT be making any cut to the subsidy.”

Hopefully some of you contacted you councillors and I know some of you even got responses:

Dear Martin, Thanks for the email. We have looked at this matter today and the money has been found to cover this. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to contact us.

Cllrs Lee Hunt & Margaret Adair

Just look how happy we all are. Good job too as we’ll be riding over to Hayling this weekend and taking the Ferry back after a few jars at The Ferry Inn. Hip hip hooray.
