The dance nights are open to Guests at £5 per head. Money is to be paid by the closing date and you will be given a ticket.
Christmas Dance Nite
Sat 20 December
The Christmas dance will be held at the Railway Club this year. There will be a HOT and COLD Buffet. We have voted to ask members for a returnable deposit of £5 per head (to cover cost’s incurred by the social club for those that don’t attend) to be paid by the closing date. You will then receive your deposit back on the night of the 20th December.

Don’t know how widely known it is but from 17th February, service 9 reverts to 5 buses in the peak, but will remain with 4 buses between 1010 and 1515 and on Saturday. The 5th bus during the peaks will give more running time and mean buses run every 10 to 11 minutes.
Also from the same date, the 4 is changed so that after running down Lavric Road it will turn LEFT into Ellen Road, then left into Hannon Road and straight across at Church square into Taylor Road and as now. So there will not be any service to Briskman Way or the far westerly part of Ellen Road. Coming from the Coppice, the 4 will now go the same way around the hub as the other buses from Cambridge Street, i.e. via New Street, Whitehill and Friarage Road into the Bus Station.
The 54 will also change in the peak to give more time on the journeys where you pick up the Colet School children.
From April 24th the 678 and 57 school contracts will cease as they are time expired – hopefully we will pick up a couple more school runs to replace these and the recently lost 632. Also from this date, the morning 150 will divert via the Open University and the 63/64 contract comes to a time-expired end. This is being retendered in a different format together with some other rural work and we will be tendering for all this work. Also from this date we hope to introduce minor changes on the 16 plus some extra early evening journeys on the 300 as the new Eden shopping centre in High Wycombe opens in March. Plus hopefully minor retimings on the 100 to be more realistic now the service has settled down.
