Cheap Train Travel to Folkestone!

Dear All,

For those not going on the coach grab yourself an excellent bargain and follow the Greens to the coast this saturday and get there in 50 minutes!

Came across a fantastic offer for £10 adults and £5 kids promo day return to Folkestone from St Pancras.

All the details are here :

The ticket is an open ticket although you have to select a train time by default but you can travel on any. You have to book by 6pm friday and either buy over the counter or book online and pick up from your local station on the day from the machine.

The weather looks decent for saturday and our team look decent so please spread the word and hope for a very decent turn out at Folkestone. Please add to the website or help tweet. But promo tickets are limited so be quick!

See you all saturday.

Public transport is a joke

Great find! - I wasn't going but now I've booked. Finally a small break. I need things to run smoothly. It took Alex B. and I over 2 hours to get from Thames Ditton to Waterloo the other week. Trains cancelled again on the way down. We stood on a motionless train for an hour. To say I'm reluctant is an under-statement. I've even pre-booked for Telford to Euston on the Worthing game, which becomes a write-off if played at Bognor! That pre-dated the pitch problems. That becomes a day at home. Three weeks ago my trains were delayed by 90 minutes. Delays and missed connections virtually every week this season. The trains have been a complete disgrace of late. It's getting worse.
A Japanese firm takes over my local line next year promising 4 trains an hour from Wales to Birmingham New Street. Part of the track is single line and that floods in the winter at Machynlleth. Nice town. No chance.
My local bus firm Arriva have just slimmed down the services. No longer can I get the first bus to the train station, so that's an extra taxi most weeks.
"Down in the Tube Station at mid-night, the wine will be flat and the curry's gone cold" Great lyric.
I'm hoping I don't end up in The Jam!
Thanks for the information - it is appreciated.

Keep your eyes on progress at Worthing - they're currently hopeful of playing at home on the 14th (a week before our visit), although they need to see how the remedial work progresses before being too confident about it.
