Hello, I am also on the retreat that begins on the 26th of August and will be coming from London. I would love a lift, but if not then I would be very happy to share a taxi from the station, probably arriving at about 1.30 as that seems to be the cheapest train...

Best wishes and many thanks in advance,

I am going to Gaia House on 26th August for the 3 day retreat. I plan to
1)get a train to Newton Abbot from London. If anyone has planned the same retreat and would like to share the taxi fare..?
2) if someone is driving from London and has space in their car, I would happily contribute to the cost.
Best regards,

My husband and I have reserved a cab from Newton Abbot train station to Gaia House on July 27 for Rob and Catherine's retreat. We are getting to Newton Abbot at 14:30. We also have a cab reserved to go back to the train station at the end of the retreat on Aug. 3 at 13:05. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to share the cab with us in either direction.

Is anyone driving from near Glastonbury or Bristol for Rob & Catherine's retreat on 27th July?

Can also easily get a bus to the M5 near Bridgwater if anyone's passing that way. Happy to contribute petrol money.

Thanks and warmest wishes

I'm coming from Bristol on 16th of July and I'm looking for a lift from Bristol. I'll happily share the costs.

If not, then I'll be coming by train and I'm flexible with times to be able to share a taxi from newton abbot with anyone who might also be arriving on the 16th.

Thank you,
