Junction Inn running trip for Whitehaven game

Date published: Friday, July 1, 2011

As with all home games, The Junction Inn (bottom of Ripponden Road), in conjunction with ORSA, will be running free transport to this Sunday’s fixture against Whitehaven. Departure time is 2pm to allow time for a drink in the club bar prior to kick off. Anyone wishing to travel is asked to contact The Junction in advance so as to ensure the correct size of vehicle is laid on. Either email junctioninn@hotmail.co.uk, call 0161 633 2759 or call in to the pub.

Subject to demand, The Junction, again in conjunction with ORSA, are also offering to run transport to the game at London Skolars on Saturday 9th July, 5pm kick off. Departure time will be 11am and there will be free breakfast from 10am as well as free food upon arrival back at The Junction. The departure time can be brought forward if the consensus is that people would like to arrive in time for the Harlequins v Wigan game that kicks off at 3pm at the same venue.

Unfortunately, having rang round a multitude of minibus companies, the best price The Junction could get, even with a small subsidy from the management, was £30. The trip is subject to a minimum demand of 16 people in order to keep it at £30.

A better price per head could have been achieved by filling a coach but that would have required filling a 34 seater which The Junction management just couldn’t see happening for such a long trip.

Anybody wishing to book can do so using the same contact details as above.
