Deal With It: Report on Tuesday's Transport Meeting

Some 17 hardy enthusiasts braved a very cold evening to attend Deal With It's Transport meeting on Tuesday, 23 November 2010.
Sarah gave us a very interesting power point presentation comprising information about car sharing, cycling, train and bus travel.

As an enthusiastic car sharer she was able to tell us of her own experiences which are so far good. Ian Kilberry, from Trains4Deal, also shared some of his acquired knowledge.

We were pleased to welcome Jeremy Cooper, Commercial Director for Stagecoach in Kent and Sussex, who gave us a very interesting talk about bus travel in general and bus travel in Deal in particular. He was very interested in all our comments and questions, noting some points in particular which were news to him. He is also an environmentallist, and practises what he preaches by travelling by cycle, bus and train when he can.

All in all, it was a very successful evening and very enjoyable.

Thanks to Vicki Nicholls and Rose Dowd for words & photos
