Next Meeting – Bus Transport

First Bus Managers and Norfolk County Council Transport Travel Development Team Manager have been invited to speak with you at our next Meeting.

Mark Reynolds (Manager) and Danny Beales (Assistant Depot Manager Great Yarmouth/Lowestoft will be updating us on new timetables and helping us with any queries we may have when accessing information and accessing their busses. They will be bringing along some new ‘First Bus’ wallets. The idea is, you place your bus-pass in a section and in the next section, you can display one of six messages, to show the driver, for example ‘Please wait for me to sit down’. Some of us already have these and are finding them very useful.

New electronic signs will be installed at ‘Market Gates’ soon. Jeremy Wiggin (Travel Development Team Manager) will be updating us on how we can access the information on the new signs.
Jeremy has recently completed a similar Scheme at selected bus stops in Norwich. I understand that the system used has been produced in conjunction with ‘RNIB’.

Christmas Lunch Meeting – Special Guest

**Christmas Buffet Lunch** Special Guest**

We have invited ‘the Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Colleen Walker to be our guest at our Christmas lunch. I am sure we will be interested to hear about her time being our Mayor.

The Buffet is on our normal Meeting on Monday 26th November at our normal meeting place. We felt after the great success of last year, it would be good if we had a little more space in familiar surroundings. We will have our fun and mysterious raffle!
We need to book the buffet in advance so if possible could you bring your monies to our next Meeting on 24th September as this is the one before the Christmas Lunch. You are welcome to bring along family and friends. We are very grateful for the help of Wendy, David, the NNAB Team and volunteers that made last year’s Christmas lunch such a success. You may book your taxis in the normal way at the normal price for a Meeting
