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. This year’s Christmas card has a 1980s theme, with our favourite single decker bus seen in a Commodore 64 style.
Before you rush off to open your presents on Christmas Day, please 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;
- Finding something worth watching may be a struggle this year. You may wish to seek alternative audio visual sources like YouTube.
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, with more rain forecast this Yuletide), tinged with real ale, and include three points at Ewen Fields or Bower Fold. Weather permitting of course.
S.V., 23 December 2014.
