  I’m afraid we have some bad news. We started running trips again last week, for small numbers of passengers, with permission from our licencing agency and from our insurance company.

Talk of mental health and self care never seems to be too far away these days, and with good reason. While I would never presume to have any specialist knowledge, there appears to be a worrying epidemic of debilitating mental health issues affecting people in this country, from children to people in their twilight years.
