Beeston turns orange!

Orange 36 bus in Beeston market place

Hi all!

Just returning for my second blog of this current two-week stint here at The Dairy! Much has happened since my previous entry a week ago.

All of last week we were preparing (along with Nottingham City Transport) for a big day in Beeston on Friday 8th July. The day would see the relaunch of the Orange route 36 as the ‘Big orange bus’ – a campaign to help with the celebration of GO2’s 10th anniversary. So we set up our stall in Beeston Market place along with a 36 route double-decker bus and a couple of NCT’s excellent drivers ready to meet the public and hand out a wealth of goody bags. I must say the event was a massive success! Oranges, orange juice, leaflets, balloons, pens… you name it, we had it in orange!

The staff and promotional team did an excellent job and the public really responded well to the event – even the Mayor of Broxtowe came along for the celebrations and to cut the ribbon!

I must say that having helped with the build up to the day, ordering the promotional items and being involved in the organisation of it all, it really was satisfying to be able to go down to Beeston for the day and see it all come together and lend a helping hand with the proceedings.

Sadly this is my final week at The Dairy for this year now so I will try to post a final blog at the end of the week to sum up my week and my time here this year.

Until my next point of interest,
