What a wonderful day!
When we arrived at the Annandale Street garage the bus was sort of hidden away near the Bus Wash. I spotted it right away. I was astonished to find how emotional I got when I saw it. Little Victoria, whose face is on the bus, just loved it! As did her little brother, James. When he saw it he said it was Tory’s bus which I thought was really sweet. Staff at lothian Buses were very kind to us all – took us through the Bus Wash (twice) and gave the wee ones a gift.
Last Saturday Ian and I went along to Castle Street to see the new hybrid buses – really fantastic. Even better we were able to meet up with Lothian Buses MD, Ian Craig. All of us at It’s Good 2 Give are looking forward to this coming year working with Lothian Buses.
I have yet to see ‘our’ bus in service – can hardly wait – it really is spectacular. Our very grateful thanks to Lothian Buses and to Victoria (and her parents) for being the face of It’s Good 2 Give.
In fact if you see it this weekend and tweet a photo – Lothian Buses will give a wee prize to the best ‘spotting’ of ‘our’ bus.
