Many thanks to those of you that have responded.
I have discovered there is abus to Gloucester Bus station that leaves Ledbury at 7.10! YIKES! That would get her to the bus station but still leaves her a 20 minute walk to school from there on her own! We did it together and I'm sure I couldn't let her do it alone at 11! Presumably there are a lot of kids arriving in the bus station around 8am to get to Denmark?
Unfortunately the prob with being working Mum is driving to gloucester is off the agenda as I have to be at work in Malvern for 8.30... UMMMM
any other thought welcomed from you jugglers out there!
