Trips and Excursions update - 06/05/2020

 

Unfortunately due to the current Covid-19 pandemic we have taken the decision to postpone all scheduled trips up to including Tuesday 30th June 2020.

All trips that were planned during this time will be rescheduled for similar dates in 2021.

We are working on contacting all passengers who are affected, please note your booking is transferable to the planned 2021 dates.

 

This wasn't a decision we wanted to make, but the health & safety of all of our customers and incredible driving team is the most important thing.

 

We will be ready to go once normality resumes, we are very much looking forward to welcoming you on board in the future, in the meantime stay home & stay safe.

CPC Driver Training

 

These are certainly differing times for us all, so we thought we’d look at alternative ways to deliver essential driver CPC training.

 

This was the first of two, three and a half hour sessions over two days in which our fantastic staff were very complimentary about the way the virtual course was delivered, further courses are currently being planned over the next few weeks.

If you would like to be added to the waiting list then we will be running courses for other operators over the next few weeks then please email training@sleafordian.co.uk.

 

Please note you will need to be in attendance and visible 100% of the time for both CPC sessions in order that your 7 hours can be uploaded.

The cost per candidate is £50 plus VAT payable at the time of booking, this fee includes the upload fee and an e-Certificate.

 

In order to participate you will need an internet connection and either a smart phone, laptop, android or iPad type device with webcam/camera.

 

Sandringham Flower Show - Wednesday 29th July

 

Unfortunately we have had correspondence from the organisers of this event, who have informed us that they have had to take the decision to postpone the event for 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

We will be running a trip to this event in 2021 (Date TBC), so if you have already booked on this trip for 2020 then your travel tickets will be valid for 2021.

We will be in contact with all customers who have booked in due course.

Thank you.

 

Covid-19 update

 

We are constantly reviewing the latest advice of the UK Government and with this in mind we have unfortunately had to make the difficult decision cancel all our excursions & day trips up to and including 31st May 2020.

 

This was not an easy decision, but the health & safety of our valued customers and dedicated driving staff is our utmost priority.

If you were due to travel with us during this time, we will be in contact in due course.

We hope to rearrange these trips either later in the year or in 2021, unfortunately we cannot commit to new dates given the current pandemic.

 

The situation will be constantly evalauted and as soon as it is once again safe to travel, we will be here ready & waiting to welcome you on board.

 

Stay home, stay safe.
