Ramsgate resident and Voice of the Valley editor Rick Everitt is running an independent coach to the Crystal Palace game for supporters from Thanet and West Kent. Leaving the benighted seaside resort at 4 p.m., the chara will call in at more up market Whitstable, fabulous Faversham and Maidstone among other intermediate stopping points.
The fare is £12 plus a 50p tip for the elves. The type of coach to be used has not been specified, but there are rumours of a 'heritage' vehicle. Details of the at seat beverage and snacks service are not yet available.
Given recent difficulties with coaches for home and away games, this is a welcome initiative. There are just nine places left at the time of writing, so it is clearly popular. To book go to: All aboard the Rickshaw
