East Coast Truckers

Smith's of Blofield Volvo B12M FP51EUN leads Javelin FN02HGY
Some eighty vehicles took part in the East Coast Truckers event held annually on every Sunday of the August Bank Holiday weekend.

The charity run takes children with special needs to Pleasurewood Hills and Great Yarmouth for the day.

Thousands of people line the route from County Hall in Norwich to the resort

I was elsewhere this year, but regular contributor Tim Miller witnessed the convoy as it passed the Wellington Pier during the late afternoon and reports two coaches from the Smiths of Blofield fleet were also in the convoy

The leading coach was Jonckheere Mistral bodied Volvo B12M FP51 EUN, new to Lochs & Glens of Aberfoyle in January 2001. She was followed by FN02HGY, a Dennis Javelin Marcopolo delivered to York of Coggenhoe in August 2002

My thanks to Tim for the report and photo
