273, 274 and 275 Crosspool to Derbyshire bus services under threat

Bus services from Crosspool to Castleton and Bakewell could be drastically reduced from October 2017.

Derbyshire County Council is considering several options in order to save money, with one of them being to withdraw all county council funding for subsidised buses from October 2017. This means that unless they can be run commercially they will stop.

The Derbyshire County Council-supported services that run through Crosspool are:

The public are being asked to comment on the proposals as part of a consultation, which ends on 24 April 2016.

Sheffield Wednesday team to play in Crosspool

For the second year running, Sheffield Wednesday have included a trip to Sandygate in their pre-season schedule.

A ‘Wednesday XI’ team will take on Hallam FC on Wednesday 27 July, kick off 7:45pm. This means that it is unlikely to be the full Wednesday first team playing – they are also playing at Barnsley the night before.

Adult tickets are £5, Junior and OAP tickets are £3.

In 2010 a strong Wednesday first team saw off the Countrymen 9-0.
