A couple of coaches didn’t make it due to mechanical problems but all in all it was a great turn out.

The Eddie Trigg “Best in Class” trophy, the winner of which was selected by the OB owners themselves, was presented to Stephen Golynia of Suffolk, owner of CCB 861. Congratulations!

The Blue Motors Trophy for the “Coach with Ambience” was selected and presented by Directors Billy Brayford and Judith Poole to Stuart Jones, Lincs., owner of MYB 33 – Well done!

A special thank you goes to the Watt’s family who travelled all the way from the Shetlands to see one of the coaches they had previously owned – HGE 219 – and it’s still going strong today under the ownership of Nick Taylor.
