Richard's family have now carried out the naming on Volvo B7RLE/ Wright Eclipse FJ09 BXE fleet number 740 and made an occasion of it when they travelled to Nottingham by bus, carried out the naming ceremony and then rode back to Ripley on his bus. They rounded off the day by having a family dinner at a local pub which they travelled to and from by tb bus.
