Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Yesterday was Garden Festival Day in our local village.

The Garden Festival always has a theme and, this year, it was the centenary of the Great War.

There scarecrows fitting the theme, open gardens, hanging baskets, plant containers, all open for judging.

Free transport is always provided by the Festival Committee, so an old bus was commissioned to fit the theme. I know, it was more in time with the Second World War but it was the closest that could be obtained.

The bus is a 1956 Daimler CVG6 and was hired from Keighley Transport Museum and sports the vivid green and orange livery of Halifax Corporation Transport.

The bus travelled throughout the village between 10.30a.m. and 4.00p.m, delivering tourists and villages wherever appropriate. It was an EXCITING ride! It bumped and wobbled with the steadiness of an old age pensioner! It was akin to an ancient fairground ride. You can imagine what fun some people had, especially the children!

Here, you can see the bus arriving, to pick up passengers outside the village Community Centre.

I wish you a day full of sunshine, Bev :-)
