Anyone lose a 16+ oyster card in and around Rush Green? If so, tell me the name on the card and I will return it to you.
Easiest thing is to hand it to a bus driver if nobody contacts you shortly. They will hand it in at their depot and it will go through the normal channels. I used to drive buses and handed in lots of them when they were left on my bus.
Mary C thanks Mary I may do that if no-one responds on social media
