At the moment, I am trying to work out a way to Bradford-on Avon, one of my favourite day out places. About 20 miles

Looks like well over 2 hours on the bus or a long cycle ride. :giggle:

A shorter cycle ride - about 45 mins and flat, (7 miles) is to Castle Coombe. However not so much to do and see as it’s quite small, but a drink or coffee in the hotel bar well worth it as the gardens are lovely.
The prettiest village in England according to this article.

This looks like another nice day out with lunch in Chipping Sodbury perhaps. I know you could go on the bus if you don’t like walking but the scenery round there is glorious. Mike quickweh showed us the OSMaps app when we were there last year or it might have been at Avon Bank and we’ve used a lot.

Maybe if enough want to visit then hire a mini bus and split the cost ?
We would be up for it. (y)
I have sent an enquiry to a big player in the area at Yate, Eurotaxis, just to get an idea of cost of a minibus transfer.

I have had a quote from Eurotaxis for ÂŁ250 for the 16 seater minibus 10 am there and 4pm back. Not cheap. They have bigger vehicles which might be more cost effective, depends on numbers.
Quackers, you have to be a recognised and registered community group to use the volunteer Green Community Travel.
We might have our car there as well as the van and could possibly be bribed to take 4 - but no promises at the moment 🙂

We would be interested - it doesn’t seem too bad a price to me - around £30 a couple or 15 for an indidual

Just a thought Annie for that sort of price you can hire a 17 seat mini bus for two days, that would allow more options. (Tolgate Hanham)

Yes please for 6 nights. Guess we will be low down the reserve list though!
lunarman is going to look at numbers again mid April so you might be higher up the list than you thought.

We would be happy to host another rally here on another date if somebody wants to organise it.

Just to keep you all updated.
Quackers and lunarman will be firming up total acceptable numbers mid April.

I will then adjust the list and put out a call for payments to be paid by May 5th.
There will then be a confirmed and paid list and after that, anyone still on reserve will be notified of cancellations as they come up.
🙂
