Following the success of last year’s event, Try A Bus Day is back!
Location: Belfairs Methodist Church, Eastwood Road North, Leigh.
The event is especially for anyone who hasn’t used a bus for a while, or who may not be very confident using the bus. Come along to have the opportunity to go on a short bus journey and discuss issues surrounding the use of buses in Southend with a local bus operator and Council travel experts. This includes finding more about routes, fares, safety and mobility.
Try a Bus Day is part of European Mobility Week, and here at Ideas in Motion we want to help people get out and about and keep active. We have some exciting events lined up between the 19th-22nd September and we’d love to see you there!
• Saturday 19th September – The Older People’s Assembly Active Ageing event takes place at The Victoria Shopping Centre, Southend from 9:30am to 2pm.
• Sunday 20th September – The 5th Annual Tweed and Vintage Fun Ride starts at 2pm at Belfairs Woodland Centre Eastwood Road North, Leigh SS9 4LR
Participants are invited to dress up in their best tweed and vintage outfits or just come along to join a mainly off-road bike ride to Southchurch Park arriving at 3.30pm.
The event is free, but cream teas (pot of tea and scone with jam and cream) for £3.50, or afternoon teas (sandwiches, scone with cream and jam and a pot of tea) for £6.50 from Southchurch Park Café, must be booked by calling 01702 215595 or emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
• Tuesday 22nd September – The Pier Walk meets at Royal Hotel at 12:30pm
1 High Street, Southend, SS1 1JE. This is a free guided walk both ways along the world’s longest pleasure pier. There’s no need to book – just turn up on the day. If you’d prefer to walk just one way, you would still be able to buy a pier train ticket for the return journey.
