Eight people who had booked for the SA coach to Carlisle on Saturday failed to turn up.

We were already running the coach with an anticipated small loss, but this has increased significantly with the loss of £320+ from those travellers who failed to show, and didn’t even bother to notify us!

The SA’s objective had always been to at least break even on coach travel throughout the season. We anticipate small losses on the longer trips, which are off-set by the shorter journeys or cup ties.

The SA Committee will be reviewing the situation, but are expected to insist on payment at time of booking in the future, for any non regular travellers.
