WAVERLEY TRIP WITH E.H.V.C. Tuesday 3rd October 2017
This trip promises to be very special event for enthusiasts of transport steam or even those just wanting an interesting day out. Riding on a Vintage 1952 AEC Regal 4 RF coach is a bonus and we are very grateful to Peter Hanining of Tinkers Park for agreeing to transport us to Gravesend and back. The Waverley is a Steam Paddle Boat in preservation which is regularly used around the country each year taking passengers on a wide variety of cruises. We have chosen to ride from Gravesend Pier all the way up the Thames, through the Flood Barrier to the pool of London which means that Tower Bridge will open for us and back of course.
The coach will leave Tinkers Park in Hadlow Down at 11.00am sharp. There is plenty of secure and FREE parking inside the rally field.
The following mobile number is provided in case you have any difficulty meeting us on time. Please use it to keep in touch to save the coach an unnecessary delay. 07852561549
The Waverley sails from Gravesend Pier at 2.00pm: sailing time is listed as 4.5 hours which means with luck we should leave Gravesend for home around 7.00pm....Tinkers Park 9.00pm.
There is food served on board but I have no experience of either quality, or cost. Fish & Chips, Macaroni Cheese or Chicken Tikka. You might like to consider a picnic to eat on the coach and Boat food for your tea.
The total cost is £36 inclusive, payable at the time of booking please. The cost for children up to and including 17 will be £20.This extremely competitive price is only possible if every seat is sold. Therefore please note this a basically a non refundable cost although I will endeavour to help anyone who finds they have to cancel by offering/selling their ticket for them. Please make cheques payable to E.H.V.C. and send with a covering note to Peter Gillies, 5 Palehouse Common, FRAMFIELD, Sussex. TN22 5QY
