On Friday 30th June, local Holyhead residents took to the road on a FREE Shopping Bus Trip to James Pringle Weavers at Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.
The coach started off by collecting people from dedicated bus stops. As passengers boarded for the trip, their faces lit up with excitement and anticipation for the day ahead. The journey was filled with conversations and stories...''The last time we went to Pringles...' and ''oooo wasnt is busy in town yesterday'', with people who has never met before, but lived in Holyhead their whole life, chatting to one another and sharing interests.
As the coach arrived at Pringles, everyone was looking out of the window trying to say Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, not everyone sucessfully but there were some cracking attempts!! We arranged to meet back in the foyer for 2:15pm, at which point most were already eager to get inside and out of the rain. Many took to opportunity to have lunch or a lite-bite on site, but others chose to bring a picnic and explore the village whilst they were there.
As the trip drew to a close and on the journey back, purchases were discussed and bargains compared. A couple from the group hadnt left their houses for a while and said: ''the trip was great, it was a good opportunity to meet other friendly faces, we'll be coming again!''.
James Pringle Weavers kindly paid for the transport too and from the destination and due to the success of the trip have agreed to continue it for the forseeable future. The next FREE SHOPPING BUS TRIP to Pringles will take place on Friday 28th July 2017 - please contact Dan Millington: Mon CF Local Conversations Officer on - 01407 762004 to secure your place.
