Bookings taken for 2011 Somme trip

Bookings are being taken for a short coach trip I have organised to the Somme battlefield over the late May Bank Holiday next year.

The four day trip from east and Central Lancashire will visit all the major sites and memorials on the Somme, including the front-line trenches held by the Accrington and Chorley Pals near the village of Serre during 1916. I have changed the hotel in Arras to one which provides a full ‘English’ breakfast, so the 3 * Mecure has replaced the Holiday Inn Express on the itinerary; the cost of the four day trip remains the same at just £219 per person sharing a twin / double room and cabin on the ferry.
