**UPDATED** BOOKINGS! ... Come On Our 'Octabber' Baccy/Ciggie/Alcohol Minicruise!

UPDATE  Just in case you missed it at the end of this post ... trips will run from Oct through to March 2013.

OK, we are ready to book. We need a minimum of 10 per trip to get the minibus across. This 10 will include the driver/drivers. P and O gave us prices this morning that means we can do trips incl Fri/Sat sailings for £46 per person all inclusive  (2 nights onboard ferry incl cabin). We should be able to get further discounts for midweek sailings. Compared with the normal bookings incl the 2 for 1's that's a fantastic deal.

There's no-one that can offer the service we can. You get the full support of N2D and it's resources. The bus carries copies of all the documentation needed along with facilities to produce personalised documents should you require them. l've posted about our facilities here http://n2d.boardhost.com/viewtopic.php?id=87

Because we are a non-profit social club , we need your help to make this work. We can't pickup from everywhere so we'd expect you, the members, to fill the gaps so to speak if you can. For example, some of our members live near Liverpool and they offer to pick up other members along the way. This keeps our costs down. Also, if you come to Hull by train or bus we'll pick you up at the stations ... and take you back.We'll give you secure free parking should you need it.

You have to be a member of the social club to travel with us. This is mandatory to enable us to stay within the laws/regs and keep the likes of VOSA off our backs. The minibus complies with all the current regulations and believe me that's a bloody nightmare. Cost of membership is only £5 and lasts up to 12/2013.

These are no ordinary trips. We aim to make them enjoyable and fun but also make you as safe as we possibly can from the tactics used by Border Force. We'll go wherever you want, visit places of interest and accommodate you wherever we can. For too long, us legitimate cross-border shoppers have been preyed on and taken liberties with by the likes of UKBA/Border Force because we were isolated and alone. Enough is enough!

Lets be that Band of Brothers! 

PM me on the FORUM or e-mail me at pres@n2d.me.uk with your preferred dates and how many you are and then we'll put it all together. Time to walk the walk!

  2. Hi, all I'm new here I love the info and help available. Has anyone come across a rolling tobacco brand called American spirit. It's expensive in uk was wondering if it can be purchased in France or belgium


"In the eyes of the Tribunal the review letter contained several preconceptions, prejudgments and non-sequiturs"

"the absurdity of this reason is demonstrated by simply stating it"

"We therefore find that Mr Sked misdirected himself as to the Policy in carrying out the review and his decision is therefore one that no reasonable review officer could have arrived at."

... commonly known here at N2D as 'Skeds' ... that is to say these are Judges comments regarding UKBA Review Officer Ian Sked's reasons for rejecting peoples appeals against seizures.
