The General Manager

The Transport Board




Attention: Ms. Sandra Forde


Dear Madam,


Re: Lack of Adequate Public Transportation Servicing The Whim and Ashton Hall, Saint Peter


I refer to my earlier letter dated 18th April this year written to you relative to the abovecaptioned matter.


I now write thanking your Board on behalf of the residents as well as on my own behalf for now agreeing to implement an additional bus service to the Whim and to Ashton Hall, Saint Peter from this month.


I look forward to receiving your Board’s continued co-operation as I seek to improve the quality of lives of the people of the Saint James North constituency.


Yours faithfully,




EGH: mal
