A HUGE thanks to everyone who attended this event and to all the volunteers who helped and the owner / drivers who brought along their fine steeds for the day. We had a truly amazing day and hopefully raised some money for a good cause - Cats In Crisis Thanet. We really couldn't have asked for a better day. A full report will appear on the Road Run page soon.
We are pleased to announce that we will be taking part in the 2014 Thanet Road Run, an event organised by local enthusiast Mick Martin. Mick started the run back in 2008 as a way of welcoming Paul Houselander's Pride Of Thanet open top back to it's original home and a total of 6 buses - all with local connections - made the run from Ramsgate to Minnis Bay near Birchington. Since then the number of buses has fluctuated somewhat with only The Pride Of Thanet and Nuw the Titan at the 2012 event. However, next year we're hoping to change this and have 6 buses again. Southern Counties are hoping to have several buses there of which we'll confirm them later.
It all starts at Ramsgate Boating Pool on the Royal Esplanade at 1000 and we will be running at least one bus up to Ramsgate Railway Station to connect with the London train (times TBC) with the buses returning to the boating pool between 1600 and 1700 (and the station also).
More details will be posted shortly and the run will get it's own page soon. Also, we're on Facebook where the Thanet Road Run has it's own group!
Here you will find out the latest news about our buses and future events we hope to attend. In addition we will add any interesting bus and coach related news we come across.
