POTTERIES OMNIBUS PRESERVATION SOCIETY
On behalf of the Committee, membership and friends of POPS,
I wish to thank all those who took part in our very successful
Potteries Transport Rally & Running Day at Britannia Stadium, Stoke-on-Trent
on Sunday 17 May 2015.
Never before has the Society been so fortunate in having such a variety of
buses and coaches (displaying so many different liveries) at any of it’s previous rallies. Thanks are extended to the owners of the commercial vehicles and classic cars also exhibited and we are very grateful to those who so kindly provided their buses, free of charge, to cover the many free tours to local destinations.
The favourable feedback received is much appreciated, thank you.
Lynda Fee, Hon. Sec.
