So how do I get my bus pass??? Okay... You must be resident in that area to be entitled to one, hence a post code ( PO box or Poste Restante wont do). Our mooring here in The Great Northern Basin wasn't registered which meant we couldn't even show out mooring agreement, we were just fobbed off from one borough council to the next. After trying three different councils all in the Derby area and all telling us that if we don't have a post code or pay council tax we are not eligible, finally one came good (Amber Valley) who have pulled out all the stops and over the last 5 days have managed to, not only get the Great Northern Basin registered, but to issue us with an address:- Nb Free Spirit, Great Northern Basin Moorings, Langley Mill, Derby. Our post will go to ECP&DA Cottage next to the basin which hopefully means there should be no problem with getting the postal vote, bus pass or pension at a later date. Finally a result!
