Wednesdayite Travel in covid times
We are very aware that we need to protect our coach users on long coach journeys to away matches and so we have decided with the advice of Wifreda Beehive (our chosen coach provider) to ask everyone to wear a mask whilst on the coach. The reasons are:
- It is a confined space
- Long journeys
- Long periods between stops
- Respect for the worries of other passengers
- We will continue to learn as we have more experience but feel we have to start with the maximum protection for our users.
We are aware it is no longer a legal requirement to wear a mask and that some people no longer wish to wear one, so if you prefer not to wear a mask please choose an alternative travel method.
If you arrive without a mask you will be refused to board the coach. A limited number of Wednesdayite face masks will be available for purchase at £5 each.
Travellers will be able to remove masks whilst seated during the coach journey.
The coaches will still have a toilet but if you need to use it between the stops please use the wipes after use and dispose of them in the bin provided to prevent blocking the toilet and making it unusable for anyone else.
Wednesdayite will continue to review these Covid Guidelines/Conditions to reflect any changes in the severity of the pandemic and relevant legislation.
Tuck shop - to avoid people moving around the coach the usual tuck shop will NOT be in operation..
Bingo/quiz - please bring your own pen - wrapped wednesdayite pens will be available to purchase for just £1 for you to keep.
11:30am- Penistone Road , City centre bound opposite to the SWFC shop
11:45am - Elmwood Farm, Beighton
12:00pm - Tallys End, Barlborough (next to McDonalds)
