DescriptionGuest of honour at the wedding of Mark and George Sach.
Both Mark and George are former drivers from Worcester depot who later transfered to Evesham depot before getting married. This vehicle was George’s favourate bus and so was used to take the bride and her family to the church then to the reception, being driven by the Evesham depot manager. For the wedding the vehicle was repainted by hand and is therefore probably the last vehicle ever to be repainted into this livery.
