Yesterday evening witnessed First Eastern Counties presenting long service awards to employees at Sprowston Manor in Norwich.

Staff are honoured from 25 to 45 years service and two Great Yarmouth drivers were celebrating 35 years of employment with the company. The same period was also served by two fitters

Those attending were ferried from Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth to the venue by First's photogenic ADL Eviro400 33423 SN60CAA

Des Speed had the honour of driving the bus, but all didn't got to plan as there was the slight problem of a small fuel leak which was quickly rectified by a visit to Vulcan Road.

With staff enjoying a free bar and an 'amazing' meal during the evening, it was left to Des to operate the return journey with 33423 arriving back at the Caister Road depot at 01:45 - a late night for him

My thanks to Des for the information and photos

  1. Mr Speed was spotted by the late night spotter heading down Caister rd observing the "Private Hire" boards so curiosity satisfied !
