King Alfred running day cancelled by coronavirus

In the first of what is likely to be a series of such announcements in the coming days and weeks, the Friends of King Alfred Buses (FoKAB) has announced today that it is cancelling its major running day planned for 3 May in Winchester.

 

‘Due to the many uncertainties associated with the coronavirus outbreak it has become necessary to cancel the event, including both the free vintage bus services and the transport bazaar. With the amount of organising effort that has already been put in, this is most disappointing but we are sure that our many friends and supporters will understand that in the circumstances there really is no other course,’ it says.

 

Depending on circumstances at the time, FoKAB hopes to hold a vintage bus running day in the autumn, probably as part of Heritage Open Days in September. If this proves practical, an announcement will be made later in the year.
