Bus Parking? Helpful suggestions needed!

As many of you will know, our charity (The Kindness Offensive), provides days out for OAPs and underprivileged young and old all year round in our rare RCL free of charge. (No one pays to ride.) We use buildings as headquarters with landlord permission, to do positive projects, while they apply fo planning permission. They pay less rates, look good in the community and we make smiles. Might sound mad to some, to do it for free, but we enjoy it as a fun thing to do, and I'm sure many of you will understand.

Our current project is now ending suddenly on Sunday (Jan 15th), after 4 and a half successful years. Desperately need space near London to park our Route master and Daff box van, especially over winter, while we set up a new project with parking space. Any reasonable suggestions, please post here or email me. Perhaps you can be the one to save the day?
