Gorleston Coach Activity

The Sunday before the August Bank Holiday regularly sees the East Coast Trucker's Children's Convoy when the truckers take disabled and disadvantaged children in their cabs for a trip to Pleasurewood Hills. The public line the route to clap and wave as it as passes through Norwich, Acle, Great Yarmouth and Gorleston before arriving at the Suffolk attraction around midday

There were some 90 HGVs in the convoy this year and I caught up with it at Church Road in Gorleston hoping to get a photo of the support coaches provided by Sanders Coaches. The two involved were Jonckheere bodied Volvo B13RTs BT14 DLX and BT14 DLZ, although the former was the only one in the procession through Gorleston.

After all the noise and excitement of the late morning, the afternoon was spent more sedately in the Gorleston seafront area. Music from the bandstand made for a pleasant afternoon followed by a drink on the terrace at the Ocean Rooms. Retracing my steps, I saw a coach outside the Pavilion Theatre and took a quick photo of Roy McCarthy Coaches' YX65 ZKM, a Volvo B11R/Plaxton Panther.
