Latest message from Olav:
It has been really hard fixing a date for the St Mary's IoS Bells but I have finally got a date and it is Saturday 30th June 2018. We have got the bells for 1 1/4 hours. There will be ringing on Thursday 28th June & Friday 29th June in Cornwall. However I have not quite fixed the area yet but will give you this information in the next week, So people can book their accommodation accordingly.
So the next step is to book the transport to the IoS. For speed, timing and comfort everyone was happy to travel by air. Some of the flights are already booked so we need to book the flights ASAP. Pip and myself are planning to stay on for a few days so if anyone else wants to stay on please let me know and what dates / times. Again I would leave it up to you to sort your accommodation out.
A day return flight from Lands End to St Mary's is £119. The parking is £7.50 reduced to £6.50 if booked in advance.
(Via boat it is £49.50 however you only get 2 hours on St Mary's 13:00 to 15:00 but possible if you are happy just to come over and have time for the ringing).
Out going flights that seem to have a large amount of space is the 8am and 10am so I would like to do the 10am. The day return flight time would be 4.30pm or 6pm flights.
If you want a longer stay depending slightly on time and day it looks like it would be £169 or £178 per person period return.
I would like to make a booking for the fights on this Sunday / Monday coming if at all possible.
Because deposits will not necessary have been collected and I may well make the deposit payment before. I will consider you are liable for the fully cost of the flights once you have confirmed to me you wish me to book flights for you.
People are also welcome to just come on one or both dates in Cornwall (Mainland)
So if you want me to book flights please send the following details either to Olav or to Contact Us.
Fully Name of each person
If you require a boat day (only 2 hours on St Mary's), Day Return flight or a period return flight.
If a period return the date of return and approx. time required to depart St Mary's
A telephone contact number so if I have any queries etc.
