United Taxis (01325 282855, so I’m not the only one with the number) are providing the transport from the Blackwell Grange to Soho restaurant.
They’re sending a 14 seater and an 8 seater at 20:15, and the 14 seater will do a second trip. This equals 36 and the hotel says there are about 40 of us, assuming a few will be late (eg Uldis) hopefully we’re about covered, but they’ll sort us out if not.
If they’re full, the cost of the minibus is a pound per head per trip. So if you get in on your own for the final trip negotiate or make sure you get bought a few drinks!
Coming back, they’re booked for 22:30. I have checked, and the bar at the Blackwell Grange doesn’t really have a closing time for guests.
PLEASE try and keep one pocket with at least 10 quid in loose cash - a fiver and coins - to cover the taxi and food.
