  PENZANCE RUNNING DAY - 20 April 2014  
     
  The 7th event is taking place this year on Easter Sunday. The associated Bank Holiday makes travelling much easier and so the event has attracted a record entry of 28 vehicles including 10 VRs ensuring 2014 really is a revival year.

Buses will make return trips from Penzance bus station between 10am and 5.15pm. Destinations include Land’s End, St Ives, St Just, St Buryan, Perranuthnoe, Mousehole and Praa Sands. An open top service will provide a circular service through Penzance (weather permitting).

There will be a feeder service from Camborne departing from the Bus Station at 9.20am. The final return to Camborne from Penzance will depart at 5.30pm.

Illustrated programmes (24 pages) are now available giving details of the vehicles, routes and schedules. Cheques, payable to “TV&GWOT” for £5.50 (which covers post & packing) should be sent to TV&GWOT, c/o Ledger Farm, Forest Green Road, Fifield, Maidenhead SL6 2NR, giving the name and address where programmes should be sent.

Alternatively programmes can be purchased for £4 from the First Devon & Cornwall Enquiry Office in Penzance Bus Station (after 11 April) or from Marshalls at the event on 20 April.
