Today we attended Northmoor's cake & coffee market, as we have done before. This is a local event for locals. That said we talked with a few people who didn't live locally. One gave us a rundown of how his local bus services had been - rundown. Running a rural community service is a challenge. We at FLM see it as key to attend local events, be seen to be part of the community, and if necessary adapt to those needs. We don't foist our service on communities - we work with communities to provide the best service for them, not us.
At today's event we took our new branded buses and had a table nearby. Particularly lovely was to be able to allow some young children on board to sit in the driver's seat!
