FRIDAY 

On the Friday prior to the event Craig, Caroline, myself, Colleen and young Jack visited some senior citizens at a lunch club, to give them a trip down memory with a talk about ON THE BUSES and were delighted that Andria Lawrence (Turn around Betty) and Phil Cambell and Brian Reynolds, two Elstree runners were able to join us. Also must give a big thanks to Mark (seen on the right in his busman's jacket) and Nerina Hughes for brining along their Routemaster bus, that stayed with us throughout the entire weekend. The event was organised by Robert Hickey and we were happy to give up our day to chat to a very responsive group of seniors.
