Changes to Stagecoach bus timings

Uncategorised Posted on 19 March 2020 21:28

All local Stagecoach bus & Supertram services and timetables are temporarily changing due to COVID-19

Following government advice to limit non-essential travel, Stagecoach are making changes to their services and timetables in Yorkshire from Monday 23 March 2020.

These changes ensure that essential routes are maintained. We’ll be running a Saturday service on weekdays from Monday 23 March. Sunday timetables are unchanged.

In addition from 20th March 2020 all Concessionary passes will be valid to use on their buses and Supertram before 9.30am in South Yorkshire, to allow concessionary pass users to access shops and services as they open early to accommodate them.

More information is available from their website at: “https://www.stagecoachbus.com/service-updates/serviceupdatesarticle?SituationId=ID-16/03/2020-11”



All Group Led Walks & Events Cancelled

Uncategorised Posted on 19 March 2020 21:18

Due to continuing onset of the Coronavirus Covid-19, the Ramblers has decided that all led walks & other activities at Group, Area or National level will be cancelled as of Wednesday March 18th until further notice.

We shall do what we can to re-arrange them as soon as it is considered safe to do so. However we do expect there to be further restrictions and some time before that is likely to happen.

We know that many of you see our walks are part of your social life as well as giving you regular and necessary exercise.

Please do keep in touch with each other wherever possible using other methods such as email, texting, using phones or Skype or WhatsApp.

Feel free to use this online Blog to keep in touch to tell people how you are and what you are doing in the interim. Are you still going out walking?

We realise this is a very serious step for all of us and it is not clear how things will pan out over the weeks to come.

We shall obviously keep this action under review and amend it according to any advice we receive either from the Ramblers Central Office, or directly from the Government or Public Health England.

Please get in touch if you require any further information.

Please keep well, keep safe and keep in touch.
Be optimistic – we will get through this.

Malcolm Dixon
