A Merry Christmas and a Peaceful 2014 from East of the M60

East of the M60's Christmas Card for 2013

Well, Christmas Day is only a few days away and as East of the M60 has done since 2011, it has issued another Christmas card to its readers.

Before you rush off to open your presents on Christmas Day, try to catch the last few hours of Ashton-under-Lyne’s or Manchester’s Christmas Markets, keep this in mind:

  • The 330 and 409 will be running a limited service on Boxing Day (half hourly during shopping hours), along with the 201, 216 and 219;
  • That Metrolink will be running a proper – full-fat – Saturday service on Boxing Day (yay!) with double trams on certain journeys;
  • It may be double fare or Tariff 3 on the local taxis for Ashton United fans watching FC United of Manchester at Hurst Cross;
  • Timeshifting your Christmas viewing will prove to be a useful ally, especially if you like Doctor Who, Vicious or Call The Midwife.

Apart from all that, East of the M60 wishes you all a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. May your Christmas be wet (which it will be anyway), tinged with real ale, and include three points at Moss Lane or Bower Fold.

S.V., 20 December 2013.
