But all has not been well for Del-boy in the Mendips. (He has tried rubbing on the embrocation.)
Sadly we have to announce that our public tour programme in all areas of SOMERSET (only) is WITHDRAWN with immediate effect from 8pm on SATURDAY 11th JUNE, due to negligible support from the towns & villages in the Mendip District Council & BANES areas, and, caused by this, mounting losses on fuel and other direct costs.
This decision is being made primarily to safeguard our profitable ‘bread & butter’ 9 week high season operating period in E Devon & W Dorset, where support is high for Mendip Mule. This does not affect any booked private hires or special rail interest tours.
Del-boy is such an irrepressible character that it will come hard to have to give up in his home territory. fbb has genuine sympathy.
His extended programme of round trips in East Devon (and over the border to the far-flung Dorset delights of Lyme Regis) is scheduled to continue. Details of the routine tour timetables can be found (of course!) on the GoTimetable Seaton App (for Android devices and downloadable FREE from Google Play Store) or on the Mendip Mule web site (here).
One loop does Seaton, Beer and Sidmouth ...
