Heritage running day set for September
Friends of King Alfred Buses (FoKAB) will have its popular running weekend on 10 and 11 September, as part of Winchester Heritage Open Days.
Participation in Heritage Open Days has become an annual event for FoKAB and as last year will be spread over two days. On Saturday, there will be a display of rare historic local buses and coaches at the Cattle Market car park in Worthy Lane, between noon and 5pm with up to 12 vehicles, ranging from 1931 to 1970. Free vintage bus journeys will operate half-hourly between Winchester Broadway and the Cattle Market.
On Sunday, there will be a vintage bus Running Day between 10am and 4pm based on Winchester Broadway. It will feature all available vehicles from FoKAB’s collection, operating free vintage bus services over traditional King Alfred bus routes throughout the local area. There may also be some visiting vehicles representing other local Hampshire operators.
Further details including how to buy a programme/timetable will be announced nearer the weekend on FoKAB’s website.
