Library event highlights adventures of “Life in the Bus Lane”
The tales of a local author, whose cross-country travels by bus inspired an eco-friendly internet campaign, can be heard at Saltford Library as part of Bath & North East Somerset Council’s “After Hours” campaign to promote the wider use of libraries.
Pat Lunt, of Odd Down, Bath, took a month-long trip around England on public service buses as a way of doing something unusual and enjoyable.
On Friday 1 March, from 10.15am to 12noon, he will talk about the book he subsequently published – “Life in the Bus Lane: An English Odyssey by Bus” – and the fascinating direction his life then took.
What started out as just a slightly whacky idea for a holiday has developed in scope for Pat. He now also has his own website (Click Here) and a continuing project that encourages people to hop on a bus for a day out (or longer), leaving their cars at home.
Come and join Pat Lunt for an intriguing insight into one man’s intrepid travels by bus to the four corners of the country, visiting destinations ranging from the Scottish borders to the wilds of Cornwall and most places in between! The event is free and people are welcome to turn up to Saltford Library for 10.15am on Friday 1 March.Leave a comment
