We had hoped to welcome Mark Whitelocks, Stagecoach Cumbria & North Lancs' Managing Director to speak at our next meeting, on 22nd May. Mark spoke to us about a year ago when he was very new in the job and I'm sure members were looking forward to hearing about his experiences in his first year of running the company.
Sadly, Mark is unable to make it after all, but instead we are pleased to learn that Tom Waterhouse, the company's Operations Director will be attending in his place. Our dealings with Stagecoach in recent times have been rather more about the commercial side of the business (fares, routes etc) so this will be a good opportunity for members to raise matters of an operational nature with Tom, although no doubt he will have been briefed on the commercial side as well.
The meeting takes place on Wednesday, 22nd May at 15.15hrs at The Cornerstone Community Centre, Sulyard Street, Lancaster (off Dalton Square) and is open to BUG members and visitors alike.
