‘Bus Pass Day’

Fancy a cheap day out?  Why not join the BMs for a day out on the buses – Use your bus pass and come along to Midhurst the day.  The plan is to board the Stagecoach no. 1 bus and head for Midhurst.  Enjoy a bite to eat there and a mooch around the town (good charity shops there!).  On the way back optional stop in Storrington for a cuppa at Joanna’s tearooms.

Bus leaves at 10.05 from bus stop outside Beales on South Street to arrive in Midhurst at around 11.35.  Plan is to then leave Midhurst on the 14.30 bus, arriving in Storrington at 15.17.  Either continue to Worthing or catch the next bus which leaves Storrington at 16.17 getting back to Worthing at 17.00. 

Should be a fun day out taking in the beautiful Sussex countryside.  If using your bus pass, total cost for the day is the price of a bite to eat and a cuppa (and cake?)

Please let either Queen Judy or Queen Jenny know if you would like to take part in this day out…………………………
