    Do we take it then that the Taunton Running Day is a thing of the past?

    Such a shame that there is to be no event again in 2019. It was so popular with everyone and really energised Taunton. One big advantage of holding it in Taunton was the opening of the bus depot and bus station as part of the event. I do hope it will return in future years so that we can once again enjoy these lovely buses. Will check back with the website next year and hope for some good news.

    Keith Hooper,Street.Thanks to all concerned with the 2019 Minehead event.Fine weather,and great countryside,and the buses,of course,made it a great day out.h

  10. This event on such a sunny day was brilliant!
    The Minehead event this past 12th of May 2019 was a joy and wonderful to see so many attend.
    I would just like to say a very big thank you to the organisers, drivers, conductors, helpers and any other members who helped make the event run so smoothly even when one vehicle decided it needed a break.
    I am greatly looking forward to attending next year and look forward to hearing more in the near future.
    Fabulous day for both young and old with scenic routes through the countryside and along the coast, one to mark in the diary for next year, roll on 2020!
