The Pondering President

We are so excited to announce our next fundraising bus running day.

This time we will be visiting our very good friends at Sammy’s of Goole on Saturday 3rd August 2019.

They currently operate a great selection of vehicles including 7 former Lothian examples.

The day will start at 10:30am with a pick up from Goole railway station with a return by 17:15 approximately.

Anyone travelling from as far a field as London, rail tickets are available at the moment for as little as £29 on the National Rail website.

The vehicles we will be aiming to make use of will be chosen from the following:

JJI1400 Volvo B7TL / Wright Eclipse Gemini (LJ03MLZ)
WLZ8062 Dennis Dart SLF / Plaxton Pointer 2 (V170EFS)

The fare for this running day will be just £10 per person and all profits from this will go towards the continued restoration of Northampton 197.
