Coronavirus Update Close

National lockdown restrictions are in place across England until 2 December but bus services are running as normal. You should only travel for work, education or other permitted reasons. 

In South Wales, all of our timetables will go back to what we were running before the 'firebreak' lockdown. There will also be some timetable changes to a number of Aberdare services to improve connectivity. 

The new tier system is in operation across Scotland, but if you need to travel, make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening in your area by checking the local government guidance.

We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you.

Skegness Bus Station Dream Tea Party

15 Aug 2016

Skegness residents and holidaymakers are being invited to help raise funds for a children’s charity by attending a special tea party this summer. 

Stagecoach East Midlands will be hosting the Skegness Dream Tea Party at the bus station on Richmond Drive to raise money for Dreams Come True, which helps children and young people with serious and life-limiting conditions to fulfill a dream.

The party will be held on 19th August from 10am until 3pm. Families can enjoy face painting, teas, coffees and cakes, magic shows, balloon modeling, music and tombola. In addition, children and adults alike can play ‘Splat the Manager’. Stagecoach East Midlands Operations Manager, Ian Naylor, has bravely volunteered to be pelted with sponges. 

Popular character buses, the Skegness Seasiders, will be in service as usual along the seafront so people can attend the party with ease. 

The tea party will be a great opportunity to grab Skegness Seasider souvenirs whilst helping to raise money for charity. Party goers can buy storybooks, t-shirts, caps and stationary at the party with all proceeds going to Dreams Come True. 

Michelle Hargreaves, Stagecoach East Midlands Managing Director, said: “As a company, we always strive to support local charities and communities so by holding the tea party, people can come along, find out about the work that Dreams Come True do and help raise money for Dreams’ children. 

“We have loads of fun games and activities that will be taking place at the tea party and I encourage visitors to join locals and enjoy themselves!”
