Season's Greetings Readers!..
Christmas 2017 is upon us and we have been very busy getting our preserved Black Prince bus trimmed up and prepared for our now annual Christmas Day FREE X51 bus service.
The X51, a former Black Prince bus route from Morley Tingley Mills to Leeds City Centre will be operated throughout Christmas Day, serving all bus stops from Morley to Leeds and return, but with the service specially extended from the City Centre to run a non-stop circuit between the two Leeds hospitals, L.G.I and Jimmy's, providing a means for staff and visitors to access the hospitals free of charge.
We offer our time as volunteers to provide this FREE bus service using our own privately preserved bus, so we really do hope it will help people get around on Christmas Day.
In previous years, we have carried several hospital staff to and from duty, people visiting sick relatives and families who do not have the privilege of car use to link up with family members for Christmas lunch.
Mince pies and Christmas crackers have been handed out to those less fortunate people who sadly have nowhere to go on Christmas Day, spreading some red and yellow Christmas cheer where we travel!.
We are hugely grateful and extend our heartfelt thanks to several other organisations for offering assistance with our bus service this year, enabling improvements as a result...
The Samuel Ledgard Society
Pete Flint-Murray Chartered Surveyor
The Leeds Railway Social Association (Leeds Railway Staff)
