As the summer approaches our bus will start putting on air conditioning – some people will think it’s too cold, or not cold enough. Please make sure you wear layers so you can either put on or take off to make yourself comfortable – we try our best to please everyone but as we know – our bodies require different temperatures to make us happy and we just can’t please everyone.
