EK Emma Knaggs Public Seen by 148

There will be a London march at the end of March. Date still TBC. We CANNOT discuss publicly or book transport until PV announce the date. Please DO NOT circulate

Good to hear this. It felt like there was some inertia from the PV campaign (maybe a perception rather than reality) and we really need a focus. Any idea when the date will be announced?


Emma Knaggs Sat 2 Feb 2019 4:22PM

Agreed, and the loss of momentum has been mentioned at today's meeting. Date should hopefully be announced with in days rather than weeks.


Olivia Leydenfrost Mon 4 Feb 2019 11:37AM

Agree that this is great news. We urgently need a focal point.


Alison Born Mon 4 Feb 2019 12:38PM

Excellent, lets hope its announced soon so we can block book coaches. We have enough of a war chest to take a risk on block booking lots of coaches up front which will hopefully mean that we can get them all from a single company (Arleen?) and won't end up paying silly prices nearer the time!


Alice Hovanessian Mon 4 Feb 2019 12:50PM

Absolutely, I don't think we should go with unknown companies again. I will book every coach in their fleet at Arleen and possibly Filers as well! They worked well together in the past. We only need to pay deposits now until 7 days in advance, when we can cancel any un-sold coaches without incurring a charge.


Emma Knaggs Mon 4 Feb 2019 1:19PM

Definitely the very first thing to do once the date is confirmed. Agree that if we block book at once we might get a better price. I think Arleen only have 6 vehicles that can be driven in London, so we will need another supplier if we want to make it bigger again.
