Wales v South Africa at the Millennium Stadium Cardiff 29/11/14

Another busy weekend for A Class Drivers with airport transfers and long distance taxi journeys across the country. This weekend brings the last in the autumn test series of Rugby Internationals, Wales welcoming the South African rugby team to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday. Can Wales beat South Africa? I think so! After a very brave strong effort against the worlds’ best New Zealand, held for nearly 70 minutes, the final scoreline did not reflect the rugby played by Wales that day and then only foiled by a charge down and the bounce of the ball twice in the last ten minutes, I like to think they can!

A Class Drivers Long Distance Taxi & Airport Transfers – Remembrance Sunday

A very busy weekend for us at A Class Drivers, indeed, after also a very busy week in the lead up to the first International Rugby match, Australia playing Wales at the Millennium Stadium. We completed several airport transfers from Heathrow to Cardiff and returns for avid Australian fans, and brought a family of Australian rugby fans from Leeds to Cardiff for the weekend. On Remembrance Sunday, veterans of the second world war travelled with us to London for events there.

Meanwhile, clocking up more long distance taxi journeys, A Class Drivers travelled the length and breadth of South Wales, bringing veterans and families of those that served during the war down from many parts of Wales to attend the Remembrance service in Cardiff. We were pleased to support members of the armed forces, past or presently serving by offering a 10% discount on all our airport transfers and long distance taxi journeys.

A Class Drivers Long Distance Taxi & Airport Transfers – Remembrance Sunday Cardiff 2014

Thousands paid their respects at Wales’ national Remembrance Sunday event that took place in Cardiff, where wreaths were laid at the National War Memorial in Cathays Park after a parade through the Civic Centre. First Minister Carwyn Jones was amongst the dignitaries to lay wreaths at the Cenotaph, and a Welsh national field of remembrance with 10,000 wooden crosses has also been opened at Cardiff Castle.

Prime Minister David Cameron described this year’s Remembrance Sunday as “particularly poignant” as 2014 marked the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings and the end of Britain’s 13-year conflict in Afghanistan.
