To use the minibus you need to be a member of the Minibus Association. The annual membership is £8 payable to the escort on your first trip on the minibus. All 2020 members are automatically now registered as 2021 members at no additional cost.

MEMBERSHIP IS OPEN TO ALL
For bookings (see destinations below ) ring: BRENDA KARN-SMITH (701076)

Our fully repaired minibus has been augmented with an extra step to counter the rather high ride it displays above the ground, which makes things that much more comfortable for drivers, escorts and, most important of all, our passengers. We visited Tesco at Broadbridge Heath on a couple of occasions towards the end of the year, which included visits to Newbridge Nursery, offering our passengers a wide choice of fayre for the festive season. Speaking of the festive season, a full minibus attended the Dick Whittington pantomime at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford, where a riotously colourful and energetic performance was enjoyed, including by the massed ranks of infant and junior schoolchildren who were also there.

Masks continue to be worn while in the minibus, and in order to gain admission to the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre an up-to-date record of negative Covid tests within the last 24 hours was required to be  provided, so we are adhering to all the various permutations of regulations as we join the rest of Wisborough Green, and indeed the whole country, in doing our best to “Keep Calm and Carry On” in these prevailing circumstances.

Please find below our service runs for this month, with some extras provided: I include an early peek at some destinations at the beginning of February, and also a full list of the next 10 months of special trips, which normally run on the first Wednesday of the month. These are always highly popular, so I’m giving everyone a chance to get in early and book your places: please note, these booking are through Kate Vernalls, our splendid Special Events Organiser, whom you can contact on 701004.

A reminder that the annual fee remains at £8 for the New Year, payable in advance to me or to the Escort on your first journey of the year. Members who joined in or after August last year are automatically included for the whole of 2022 at no extra cost, well done you special bargain hunters! Membership is open to all Wisborough Green residents, and we are always on the lookout to welcome new members, either as passengers or joining our enthusiastic team of volunteer drivers and escorts, who keep the whole show running. Please get in touch with me on 700320 if you think you might be interested in learning more details of membership or volunteering.

All the Best,  Dave Wallace, Local Coordinator
