Slindon lies on the A29 just north of its junction with the main A27 east-west south coast road. The best way to reach us from London is via the A3, turning off at Milford and thence via Petworth, following signs for Chichester, and bearing left towards, and then through, Eartham.
Slindon shares a village bus with neighbouring Amberley, run by volunteers. On three weekdays, you can take the bus to one of several local shopping centres, Bognor Regis, Rustington and Chichester. Once a month the bus also goes to Worthing. If anyone fancies volunteering to DRIVE the village bus, especially as we are due soon to take delivery of a brand new bus *, please call David Slee on 01243 814604.
* We have recently heard that the base vehicle of our new bus has arrived from Peugeot and has been scheduled into build. The DVSA have issued a vehicle test date in the second week of August. Once the vehicle has been tested, registration takes approximately 10 days. Based on this vehicle test date, it is estimated that our delivery date will be in the second half of August. Watch this space.
