Weston Super Mare Event

Another event notice from the PCTPG:

It is hoped to run a vehicle to the Crosville Mini-Running day at Weston Super-Mare on Sunday, Sept 1st. This is a superb day out, with lots to see and do with the classic rebuilt pier and numerous fish and chip shops along the sea-front!!

Bring your dog (well behaved) friends, grand-children, picnic (please take your litter with you) and enjoy a day out with us.

The trip can only go ahead with sufficient numbers travelling due to the cost of fuel to Weston Super-Mare and back. We are looking for a minimum of 20 persons plus an available driver with suggested donations in the region of £10 per person. This could be even less subject to numbers travelling!

Crosville are providing free trips on their Class 5 registered vehicles,  or for the cost of £3.50 you can buy a day-rider and travel on their Class 6 routes which will include the lovely service 100:

Sunday September 1st 2013

In a change of plan from the advertised format of our Crosville Rally, we are unable to open our depot to the public this year. However, we will still operate a 'Mini Running Day' in Weston-super-Mare. The date – Sunday 1st September – is unchanged.
The change is due to operational requirements and the availability of manpower but we are keen to invite our loyal local customers and enthusiasts alike to sample the delights of riding on our cherished fleet of heritage buses

We will be supplementing our usual open top Olympians on the 100 service to Sand Bay with heritage open toppers. Subject to operational fitness, these will be ex-Crosville Bristol FSF6G DFG81 (891VFM) and ex-Bristol Omnibus Bristol VRT 5055 (LEU263P). These will run as duplicates to the normal timetabled services.
Additional (closed top) vehicles from our active heritage fleet will also operate free rides around the town during the day. These will pick up and set down at the Grand Pier bus stop. We hope to publish route and timetable information on this website nearer the event.
Please note that our Winterstoke Road depot WILL NOT be open and no services will run from this location.
