Bus named by local schoolchildren

Emily and Marcus 

Eight year old Emily Peacock of Langtoft, near Driffield, and Marcus Aldred-Young (age 5) of Hull have jointly won a competition organised by East Yorkshire Motor Services to name another of the Company's training buses.

The competition, which was open to people attending the Company's eighth annual "Big Bus Day" in Hull in September, offered the chance for young people to suggest names for another of the Company's fleet of five training buses, and Emily and Marcus both suggested Busby, which was chosen by the Company's training team from over 30 entries.  One bus is already called Faith as a result of the competition last year.

This year's Big Bus Day, a bus-themed community event organised by EYMS at Hull's Museum of Streetlife, broke all records with over 5,600 people attending and raising £2,500 for the NSPCC.

Emily and Marcus were invited to East Yorkshire's head office in Hull on Saturday to unveil their chosen name on one of the buses, where they were met by EYMS Chairman, Peter Shipp, and Training Manager, Darren Kendrew.

As well as seeing their chosen name on the bus, Emily and Marcus received a small "goody bag" containing a bus model and other bus related items.
