Dear schools and coach drivers,

Please note that The Close, which leads to Lichfield Cathdedral, is a private road. Unfortunately coaches are not able to access this road. Therefore, we ask all coach drivers to drop the children off on Beacon Street, where the school staff will be able to escort the pupils upto the Cathedral.

We highlight this, particualrly as there is work taking place on the Cathedral, which makes any coach manovering more dangerous with pupils joining the Inspire event.
