3pm would be best for me. The trains back to cardiff are every 15mins but the trains up the valley are every 2 hours.

Looking again, I can be there at 3.30 or 5.30pm

Which is best? Argh.
I can fit you in with my 4pm pickup of Lynz and Lizzie if you dont mind waiting or i can pop back at 5.30 if noone passing at that time - i think Bagpuss will have left by then and be just arriving at site.

I finish work at 6 and will be heading up to Wigan to pick up Dolly for prob around 6.30 (Yes Dolly, I know it only takes 15 mins from mine to yours, but I'll get lost, set the sat nav and I need to get out of work too!) so we'll arrive rather late on the Friday night. Prob around 9.30, 10pm ish as it takes 3 hours to get to Bristol from mine. I'm hoping the motorways aren't too busy!!

Ok - now booked my tickets - will arrive at 5.30pm to Parkway.
Going back I'm not leaving until 3.30pm.

Any lifts would be ace! Ta all!

Could I be slightly cheeky and ask for a lift with Lynz too please? Hopefully meeting her in Bath on friday so would be grateful for a pick up please :)


My bf should be picking me up on the Sunday so I can get back to Ciren easily enough on the sunday :)

Yes thats no problem.

So I have Lizzieloubee, Lynz and Coolandme at around 4pm - sorted :)

I'll be in the pick up area - look for a black Golf and a familiar looking hoody/polo on the driver.

I'm getting confused too! I think the list above is who Curly is now picking up and I'm getting Panda, Smiley and Snowy91 at 5pm.

I think we've missed so far:
Lette who's coming in at 5.30pm. If no-one else can get her then we can wait until then and bring her but if anyone else is going anywhere close at that time that would better than us hanging around.

Claratrix coming in at about 8.30pm. I don't think we have anyone for her yet. I can pop back if there's noone about at the right time.

Loopy who's coming Saturday morning but hasn't mentioned a time yet. Let me know waht time Loopy and I'll come and get you.

I have bolded the people getting lifts above. If you're needing a lift and are not above then we've missed you! Shout loudly and we'll sort something out.
I'm going to PM my pickups with my mobile number, just in case the trains are delayed/cancelled/etc! (Not that that ever happens of course)

Gwen: I can get a direct train to reading from durham which would stop me having to change in london so if you let me know what time you will be leaving I can see if there's a good train for me if you don't mind giving me a lift? Also reading is near my parents so I can coincide a visit on the way back maybe!

Otherwise does someone have space for me from bristol? I'll organise trains around other people :)
Would you still like a lift from Reading (if you have already posted i apologies if I have missed it). What time would you like picking up. I am flexible as have a half day so can pick up from any time after about 2pm

Nope I'm definitely going to turn down the lift from reading thank you though I have realised that would add far too many hours to my journey, however this means I need a lift from bristol please (this is me shouting loudly) I could come in at whatever time won't be able to book in advance as I have no money until loan comes in so uf someone can pick me up please tell me!
