To all staff

The hospital is always trying to cut its carbon footprint, and to do this, we want to encourage staff, visitors and patients to use environmentally-friendly forms of transport to and from the hospital. Therefore, we are making the following changes, which will come into effect from 1st April:

Car Park A will stay as a staff car park, but, to encourage car sharing, it will only be available to cars containing 3 passengers or more. This rule will be in place between 7am and 6pm. A car park attendant will monitor users. Note that cars do not have to leave the car park with three passengers. The parking fee will remain at the current price of £1 an hour up to a maximum of £5 per day. If you are interested in car sharing and wish to find members of staff who live in your area or along your route, please click on the link on the human resources page of the hospital website. Car Park C, previously a staff-only car-park, will now be open to visitors at the increased cost of £2/hour up to 5 hours, and £1 an hour after that. These new rates will also apply to staff/visitor Car Park E. Car Park B will only be open to blue card holders. Only senior and emergency staff are eligible for this card.

Car park D will no longer be in use, as it will make way for an improved bus park. The current bus service (Service 56D) from the city centre will be replaced by two services. The service will be available to staff, patients and visitors alike.

Service 57A will run from: Hebdon Town centre, Hebden Station, Critchley Park and Ride, Grafton Street Train Station, Portchester City Centre (Bus Stop D on Mill Yard) to the hospital. The service will run 24 hours a day every 20 minutes between 7am and 7pm and once an hour during the night.

Service 62A will run from Oldgrave Town Centre, Kings Wood Park and Ride and Polegate Park and Ride to the hospital every 15 minutes between 7.30 am and 7.00 pm and once every 30 minutes thereafter.

The buses will have a flat rate of £1 per journey. Staff will be able to buy a bus pass valid for 20 trips for just £15. These can be purchased on the bus.

Staff can also purchase a Go! pass from the human resources website. The Go! pass costs £45 and entitles users to park at any of the city's park and ride services for just £2 a day. It is valid for one year.

There will also be an improved lock-up shed for bicycles and motorcycles in the former car park D. Hospital staff may wish to take advantage of the voucher giving 50% off all cycles and cycle accessories bought from Perkin's Wheels, which is downloadable from the Human Resources website. Note that you will have to show your staff ID card at the store when making purchases. There will be a fix-it session once a fortnight in car park D on Fridays at 2pm- 5pm. At this time, bicycle mechanics from Perkins Wheels will give advice on bicycle upkeep and make minor bicycle repairs free of charge.
We hope you will take advantages of these schemes.

Task 2

Read the holiday brochure and decide if each statement (6-10) is True (A) or False (B).

Read the text and say if the sentences are True, False or Not Stated.

My name's Jon and this happened to me when I was on holiday in Seville, in the south of Spain.

I was having a coffee in a bar when a man came up to me. He was quite smartly dressed, and he looked very respectable. "Do you speak English?" he asked. He definitely wasn't Spanish, but I'm not sure where he was from. "I'm very sorry to bother* you, but I have a serious problem", he continued. "I'm here on a business trip, and I've lost my briefcase* - it had my passport, my wallet*, my money, my credit cards, me mobile, my address book, everything. Could you help me? I need to borrow 60 euros to get the train to Madrid - my company has an office there. I'll pay you back, of course. When I get home, I'll send you the money. You can give me your address in England". I wasn't sure, but he didn't seem suspicious*, so I agreed. I wrote down my home address on a business card he had, and I gave him 60 euros. I even bought him a coffee.

We chatted for a few minutes, and then he looked at his watch and said, "Well, I should get to the station. Thank you very much for your help. You'll have your money back in a couple of weeks, I promise." And he walked out of the bar.

So… do you think he paid me back? No, you're right, he didn't… and I won't lend money to strangers again!

1.The foreigner explained his problem.

2.He was from Madrid.

3.He was on holiday in Seville, in the south of Spain.

4.Jon received his 60 euros in a couple of weeks.

5.Jon won't lend money to strangers again because he was fooled on his holiday.
