Carry on cruising in 2021: P&O’s latest cruise ship arrives in Southampton

If you love your cruises, you will be as excited as us to see the latest addition to P&O’s cruise fleet, the Iona, sail into Southampton Water last week. Greeted by a flotilla of small boats and tugs with water hoses, the Iona looked magnificent in her unashamedly British livery on her prow and stern.

Local pubs with gardens: we’ll do the driving!

The sun is shining, and at last our local pubs can open with their gardens and welcome us back! We’ve listed some of our customers’ favourites, plus some of our own, which are now open and (mostly) serving food.

If you’re planning a visit, do ring and check with the pub first. You’ll usually need to book a table in advance. Also ask what days they are open too – some are not open 7 days a week yet.

Going to an Easter garden meet-up? Hop in a taxi!

It’s back for Easter – the rule of six! We probably never thought we’d be so glad to see that rule again. As of Monday 29th March, we can now meet with up to five other people from different households in our own gardens, just in time for the Easter holidays. What’s more, two households can meet up, which is great for larger families. (Just remember, social distancing still applies, and the rules apply for outside garden meet-ups only – strictly no mixing indoors.) So, book your private hire taxi now, and hop over to see your family in style!

The 5 Days of Christmas: why you should pre-book a private taxi this year

 

It’s official. The current Tier 2 restrictions in our area will be relaxed for five days over the Christmas period to allow us to meet in a “Christmas bubble” with two other households.

From 23 December to 27 December, you can travel to meet the households too, in their homes. You can also go out to enjoy a “substantial” meal at a local pub or restaurant with your family.

So if you want to have a glass or two to celebrate the season, the big question is, who is going to drive?

Good news – Your Local Car’s friendly, local drivers are ready and waiting! They drive, you relax and enjoy yourself. How nice does that sound…
