Sophisticated advanced planning by Southern Rail has ensured that no trains will be stopping at Falmer on Boxing Day, the day of the Albion-Arsenal match at the Amex stadium. This is good news for residents of Fulking and Poynings who wish to attend: you can just drive to the Brendon Stud & Saddlery at Pyecombe and catch a shuttle bus to the stadium. Other readers may wish to give the A23 a wide berth that evening. Visit WeAreBrighton for the rest of the story.
