TRANSPIRE the Chesterfield Bus Society

WEDNESDAY 28th SEPTEMBER 2016, is exactly 40-years since the Society was founded.

To mark the event at 4.45pm one or more preserved former Chesterfield Transport buses (hopefully to include Leyland PD 225 and Daimler 266), will depart Chesterfield Town Hall to follow the former 1976 bus route 54 to North Wingfield.  There will then be a celebration buffet at the Blue Bell Inn, before the buses return to Chesterfield.

The celebrations will then continue with a meeting at Rose Hill United Reformed Church beginning at 7.30pm.  During the evening the President and some of the Vice Presidents will give short speeches and there will be illustrated presentations showing the past 40 years of bus development in Chesterfield.

All those interested in attending the buffet meal at North Wingfield are asked to contact Neville Whitmore by phone or text on 07709-987478.

But to finish with, a selection of Chesterfield operated buses liveried to celebrate certain aspects of the town and the main operators (Chesterfield Corporation Transport, East Midlands Motor Services and Stagecoach), over the past few decades.
