We firmed up arrangements for going to York on Monday 2nd March to lobby Northern Rail. We already have almost 50 people going on the bus and hope to fill it.
Details are slightly changed for Barnsley pick up:
Sheffield 10am prompt Paternoster Row (road beside Showroom cinema).
Barnsley 10.30am Eldon Street (opposite Parkway cinema) **** note: little earlier and different spot.
Doncaster 11am front of railway station.
We should get to York about 12 noon.
We hope to arrange a march into York centre after the lobby possibly meeting up with a disabled people’s demonstration.
We are going to leave time for getting lunch – not sure what time to return but we want to miss teatime rush hour.
If you haven’t put your name down yet then email or phone me to book a seat.
We have decided to have a leafleting session Monday week, 16th Feb, at Barnsley bus station at 11am to advertise the York demo and advertise our campaign and then to catch a bus just after 12 to Barugh Green to lobby Tates Travel offices to get them to consider bringing in the flat £1 fare for any journeys outside of 9.30am to 11pm as a couple of companies are now offering.
If you cannot stand for an hour leafleting then come along just before 12 to join the lobby of Tates.
The next planning meeting in Barnsley library will be at 11am Thursday 19th February.
