Sunday Walks starting tomorrow, London to Brighton EV Rally on the 18th, and our AGM on the 23rd July
Sunday Walks starting tomorrow!
Following a break due to Covid 19, we are resuming our Sunday Walks tomorrow, Sunday 4 July 2021. We are planning monthly walks on the first Sunday of each month up to October.
We generally take the bus out into the countryside, walk at a leisurely pace for about 3 hours taking in the scenery and finish for lunch at a nice old country pub.
Walks are between 5-7 miles long and aim to provide good exercise in beautiful country surroundings without being too strenuous, though some walks are quite hilly.
They are suitable for all ages from about 6 onwards, though younger ones are also welcome if you don’t mind carrying them part of the way!
Tomorrow’s walk is up to Firle Beacon along the South Downs Way, finishing in Alfriston. More info here: thebiglemon.com/walks
London to Brighton EV Rally
The Big Lemon London to Brighton Electric Vehicle Rally is a brand new event being held for the first time in July 2021, to demonstrate and celebrate the rapid development of electric vehicles and renewable energy.
Starting on the banks of the River Thames and finishing on Brighton Beach, the event is open to participants with electric vehicles of all types, shapes and sizes, with prizes for lowest energy consumption in all classes.
The inaugural event is sponsored by EDF, and will mark the launch of our new Higer STEED electric buses (above, right!). The new buses will be taking part in the rally, along with 60 other vehicles including a number of self-built vehicles. All vehicles will be on display at the finish line at Madeira Drive, by the Brighton Zip.
Entry is still open if you want to participate, and of course you are invited to join us on Madeira Drive to our new buses cross the finish line and have a look at all the weird and wonderful machines that will be on display once they have finished the rally. There will also be a chance to drive one of our new buses! More info here: londontobrighton.org
The Big Lemon AGM
The Big Lemon AGM will be held on Friday 23rd July at 10.30am, virtually through Google Meet. Although only Shareholders are able to vote in the meeting, we invite the whole community to take part.
We will be reporting on our transition to an electric bus fleet in Brighton & Hove, and on progress at all three of our businesses: The Big Lemon Buses; Brighton Horizon Coaches; and Seaford & District Buses which we acquired at the beginning of this year.
