Rural Bus Services - Feeling the PressureBOOK NOW
28/02/2018 18:45:00 - 28/02/2018 21:00:00

When:
28 February 2018, 18:30 for 18:45 - 21:00
Where: The Talbot Campus of the University of Bournemouth, Wallisdown Road, Poole, BH12 5BB
Meeting Point: Reception Desk

Speaker: Adam Keen, General Manager, Morebus, Bournemouth & Poole

Rural bus services provide the most affordable solution to the transport needs of country dwellers and this demand is nowadays increased by the mobility needs of an ageing population in rural areas. This service has historically been subsidised by local government but this is now threatened by national restraints on public spending. Our speaker represents Morebus that has, in addition to its network serving the Bournemouth/Poole conurbation, responsibilities for services that link many smaller communities to the facilities of those two urban centres. Adam Keen will provide us with both a comprehensive overview of the challenges and the entertaining lighter aspects of this responsibility. 

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

What is the Role for Electric Freight Vehicles in Urban LogisticsBOOK NOW

Meeting Point: Security

Speaker: Tanja Dalle- Muenchmeyer, European programme Manager, FREVUE

Urban air quality is of increasing concern in London as well as most other cities in the UK. While policy measures have long focused on busses and passenger cars, freight vehicles are now moving up the political agenda and an array of new measures are being introduced to reduce the impact of vans and trucks on London's air quality. Based on the Freight Electric Vehicles in Urban Europe ( FREVUE) projects, Tanja will present findings on electric freight vehicles, their economics, technical and operational suitability as well as environmental benefits based on these results and new initiatives, can we say that the electrification of freight vehicles is the way forward?

Aviation Heritage - RAF Greenham Common, Berkshire's biggest airfieldBOOK NOW
11/06/2018 18:30:00 - 11/06/2018 20:00:00

When:
11 June 2018, 18:00 for 18:30 - 20:00
Where: Reading Town Hall, Blagrave St, Reading, Berkshire RG1 1QH
Meeting Point: Soane Space

Speaker: Jonathan Sayers, Market Researcher, Thatcham Research

Jonathan Sayers is a renowned author who has written a book on Greenham Common - famous for cruise missiles and peace women, but with a rich aviation history reaching back to its opening in 1942, being handed over to the US Army Air Force in 1943 as a home for a Troop Carrier Wing and later Fighter Wings. Key to the D-Day operations, Eisenhower met US paratroopers at Greenham on the eve of the landings. It became a strategic nuclear bomber base and finally housed part of the US Ground Launched Cruise Missile (GLCM) force in Britain that played such a large part in bringing the Cold War to an end.

Now returned to common land, its military connections pre-date WWII (it was used for troop movements during the English Civil War and in the eighteen and nineteenth centuries). Its military legacy is now a preserved Air Traffic Control tower that is open to enthusiasts who can see more of the airbase's history. A future visit is being considered by the Thames Valley Group.

Jonathan will look back at the history of the base to put the control tower restoration into context.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.
