Jade says "Be safe on buses"
East Yorkshire Motor Services Ltd. has enlisted the help of the children of Hull to help passengers enjoy their bus journeys safely.
The EYMS Bus Safety Poster Competition, launched at the Big Bus Day last year, was set up with the intention of reminding children of the importance of being safe on buses. EYMS wanted to find a drawing which they could use to remind passengers to stay safe when travelling.
Jade Murphy (11) of Rokeby Park Primary School, Hull, won the competition with her drawing reminding passengers not to run around on the bus. Her design has been turned into a poster which will go up in 100 EYMS buses in and around Hull. She has been invited to the company’s Anlaby Road Depot to officially put up the first poster in a bus.
Jodie Kerr (6), also of Rokeby Park Primary School, won second prize in the competition. Both Jodie and Jade won a family bus pass and ice skating tickets.
Jade and Jodie were presented with their prizes by Peter Shipp, Chairman and Chief Executive of EYMS Group, at their school.
The Big Bus Day, which EYMS hosts in partnership with the Streetlife Museum for Transport, is an annual bus themed event for both local families and bus enthusiasts.
