  A  5-minute stop en-route will delay us, so we leave Knowle/Solihull earlier if all passengers are present. Please ensure you have ticked the correct pick-up point.

  On weekdays we leave London by 4.15, so avoiding some of the rush hour traffic. With one short stop, we aim to arrive home by 7.30 if those who’ve booked ‘singly’ sit by other ‘singles’ it will ensure that couples get seats together. No smoking on the coach please.

  The cost depends on the cost of coach hire, and (including driver’s tip) is currently £15.00: non-refundable. Full payment when booking: cheque's to ‘Earlybirds’. If others are waiting for places, those not having paid will have there names transferred to the Waiting List. The ‘stand-by’ list is for those unable to commit themselves. Please don’t add names to the main list unless sure you will be able to go. Do phone the night before, to book seats.

  Cancellations should me made immediately, as waiting list people need notice. For last-minute cancellations (so that we don’t wait unnecessarily ) 

Phone Ann Ash 0121 705 4050 before 10.00 p.m. the previous evening or between 4/5.30 and 4/5.50 on the morning of the trip. Knowle passengers should arrange to pass messages to others at Knowle.
