I just wanted to say thank you very much to the two ladies who ran the Big Brum Buz on Sunday 2nd June, from Victoria Square to Sarehole Mill and Blakesley Hall.
I came along with my husband, two kids and grandad, we had a fabulous day out thoughly enjoyed being on the bus and visiting the museums.
The ladies were very friendly and gave us a lovely welcome when picking us up.
The commentary was fab, we came from Stourbridge so not far but still learnt loads.  Both museums were really great to visit.Beautifully kept and lots to look at, especially for the children.
I've shared my pictures with friends on facebook and had loads of positive comments!

Some times its easier to show you what a good time we had . .:

Once again, thanks very much for a lovely day out!

Kind regards, 

Helen Robinson
