Plans are underway to attend the National Arboretum Staffordshire on 27th/28th February 2016 to attend the unveiling of a memorial to those who lost their lives during Op Granby (the first Gulf War).
The Regimental Office is arranging for a free coach to be laid on to take people from Edinburgh to the Holiday Inn Express Lichfield on Sat 27th and transferring to the Arboretum on the morning of 28th. We have booked a 45 seater coach, but those travelling will need to book and pay for their own accommodation. We have sourced the Holiday Inn Express which has 102 rooms and if booked early enough, will give a good rate. However, the choice of accommodation is yours.
The coach will leave from Waverley Bridge, Edinburgh at 1400hrs Sat 27th Feb. ETA at the Holiday Inn Express is approx. 1800hrs Sat 27th. On Sun 28th the coach will depart from The Holiday Inn at 1000hrs arriving at the Arboretum in time for the 1045hrs service. After the service there will be time to look around the Arboretum and have lunch before the coach departs for the return leg to Edinburgh.
To book a seat(s) on the coach contact the Regimental Office on 0131 557 0405
