A timely reminder - as from July 6th. 2014 London Buses will not be accepting cash for fares.
So, if you don't have a Freedom Pass you will need to top up an Oyster Card or buy a travelcard (both available from Newsagents and Supermarkets) or ask your bank for a contactless debit card.

REMEMBER THE PARKS POLICE ?
It is now almost 3 years since Redbridge Council so disgracefully discontinued the use of a dedicated police service in the borough's parks and countryside. And within 6 months the Boris "BOGOF" arrangement that was used to replace them (allegedly!) will come to an end. It remains to be seen what will happen then.
My spies tell me that Redbridge Council will be the respondent on 5 and 6 February to an action in the High Court being taken on behalf of the staff of the former Parks Police with regard to the disgraceful and unfeeling way in which their services were terminated by an ungrateful council.
