A Pleasant Surprise
A couple of days ago I got a pleasant surprise in the post from Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM). Back in November last year I used one of TfGM's Wayfayer tickets to take the train to and from a long, wet and windy walk over some of the Peak District moorlands. And on the back of the ticket was a brief questionnaire that asked for details of the trains I caught and in exchange I would be entered into a prize draw; I therefore duly filled it in and returned it. So imagine my surprise when I got a letter and £25 M&S voucher from TfGM this Friday just gone! A most pleasant surprise and all I did was take public transport to and from a moorland walk :)
