Event this weekend

Well I am now back in Plymouth. Totally shattered after a great Grand Prix trip to a very wet Silverstone with Plymouth Citycoach. It will be a day or two before I catch up on all the emails and my Google Reader list still stands at over 1000 articles to view. I will post a full review of my trip later in the week alongside the rest of the Royal Blue collection which continues for a week or so.

For now we have this little event which may interest some:

On Saturday 14th July, Plymouth City Council is hosting Hands on Plymouth's History - 2012 A Year of Celebration, a day of free events for all the family in Plymouth Guildhall.

Hands on Plymouth's History is presented in association with Plymouth and West Devon Record Office (which has its 60th anniversary this year, and will showcase some of the interesting records from its  collections), the Devon Family History Society, and Friends of Devon's Archives.

  • Stagecoach (and its predecessors, Yorkshire Traction) have run the Pogmoor Circular in Barnsley for many, many years. It passes the local pub, the Tom Treddlehoyle Public Transport Experience
  • For the uninitiated, there is a difference. Buses are designed for short journeys, and are generally less opulent than their long-distance coaching cousins which are purpose built with passenger comfort as a priority. 270KTA
