Yn ychwanegol at y bysiau ysgol oedd yn gweithredu drwy Bowys, roedd llawer
o bobl yn dal i ddefnyddio bysiau ac yn dibynnu arnynt i deithio yn 2002.
Neuaddau Pentref Kinnerton
at home Nanny was arriving on the shuttlebus from Knighton to babysit for
our evening out.
- Went to
Crickhowell to catch the 10.05 bus to Abergavenny.
- We duly
went to get the bus from outside Kinnerton village hall, but the time-table
for the buses seems to have been changed since we last did this walk.
Roedd prinder gwasanaeth
bws yn achosi cryn drafferth i un bentrefwraig.
- Only once a
week do we get a bus in our village of Cwmdu, arriving from Builth Wells it
arrives around ¼ to ¼ past ten going to Abergavenny which is
ten miles from here, calling on the way around the small villages of Llanbedr
and Llangenny, arriving at Abergavenny about 10.30. Starts back at 1.45 leaving
us just a couple of hours to get to Bank, Post Office and shopping. Our nearest
shop from Cwmdu is 4 ½ miles away at Crickhowell but we get no bus
there at all. That was finished about 3 years ago. Now, if I have to get to
surgery and health centre to visit Doctor I've either got to cadge a lift
or pay £5.25 one way for a taxi. I can remember three buses travelling
to Crickhowell on a Thursday in the 40s, 50s and 60s. What a difference. We
had a grocer calling, butcher and baker twice a week. Our shop and Post Office
in Cwmdu has all gone now. We still have our village school with 50+ pupils.
What a difference in this modern age. I have to carry all my shopping now.
Weithiau defnyddid y bysiau i deithio ymhell.
- This morning my Uncle
George died. Organised bus travel to North of Scotland to go to funeral next
week . . . Bus return fare will cost £61.50.
Bydd bysiau preifat yn cael eu llogi at ddefnydd hamddena yn ogystal.
- The National trust has arranged
for a trip to Shugborough (the seat of the Earls of Lichfield) for volunteers
and staff. I am a volunteer. We get up at 7am to get ready to go to Powis
Castle for the coach . . . the coach left at 9 with some 35 people and
we arrived at Shugborough at about 10.40.
