I have just spoken to SBC leisure (www.sbcleisure.com
) which does a lot of Westcliff / southend school runs from Great Notely, Chelmsford, Billericay and Ingatestone . They said they can consider putting a service for Romford/Gidea Park/Harold wood and Hornchurch DCs to Westcliff if they have a minimum of 20 people.
Please send me a PM ( not sure if I am allowed to post the details here) and I will give you their details or you can go online to check them out. They are working on a quote based on mileage but think it will be a monthly standing order payment of between £125 - £140 for 10 months per school year if there are 20 kids.
