The Bedford OB 73rd anniversary and Get-Together held on Sunday 5 August at South Cerney Airfield was a great success and a total of 18 Bedford coaches were present – a huge thank you to everyone who travelled to attend.
The following were in attendence at the event:
A couple of coaches didn’t make it due to mechanical problems but all in all it was a great turn out.
The weather forecast didn’t look good but on the day there was a good deal of sunshine and just a few showers – not bad considering the weather we have had recently!
The Eddie Trigg “Best in Class” trophy, the winner of which was selected by the OB owners themselves, was presented by Martyn Slater, chairman of the Steam and Vintage Extravaganza to Ken and Delyth Edwards of Mid Wales, owner of ETL 221. This is one of only two remaining Plaxton bodied coaches. Congratulations to them!
The Blue Motors Trophy for the “Coach with Ambience” was selected and presented by Directors Billy Brayford and Judith Poole to Annette Withers of Lewis Coaches, Somerset, owner of JDV 754 – and it really does have lots of ambience! Well done!
Third prize went to Rik Vanheusden from Belgium – and the trophy hip flask will be sure to keep him warm on his long trips!
And last but not least, Tony Hunt received a prize for attending the show with his coach, BJV 590 for the very first time – it was great to see him there.
A final thank you to Norman Aish who as always was able to provide spare parts at short notice!
