Please be aware that due to this programme being planned months in advance that bus time tables could be changed or, worse still, cut completely by the time any trip actually takes place. Also, the ever continuing industrial action being taken by the rail unions on Southern Rail also means, that trips can be completely impossible at worst or risky at best. This can mean other trips are substituted at very short notice. Any queries – email@example.com alternatively phone Max on 01243 828394.
