Somerset Passenger Solutions, with the support of Hinkley Point C, were delighted to provide the transport for the annual Quantock Walking Festival 2022
For the third time over the last 5 years, SPS and EDF supported the Quantock Walking Festival, based from St Mary’s Church Centre in Nether Stowey, by transporting walkers to and from the Centre to their walk start and end points in and around the beautiful Quantocks.
Over the 5 days between 8th and 12th June risk assessments, route planning and driver training was carried out for locations including Holford Bowling Green, Haswell House in Goathurst, Hestercombe Gardens, Kilve Beach and Lilstock Beach. There were 1 or 2 interesting challenges as unexpected road closures were encountered – and some narrow overgrown lanes were also fun to negotiate!
Drivers Jim Treadaway, Harvey Frost, Sian Eades and Nick Hutt carried over 120 passengers (a few accompanied by their dogs) over the 5 days and a good time was had by ball.
Working with the team at Hinkley Point C, Somerset Passenger Solutions are committed to supporting the communities we operate in. We look forward to our next community trip.
