On 6th February this year Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.
To celebrate this anniversary, there is a four day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June. To honour this celebration, Stagecoach South Wales have unveiled a bus dressed in a jubilee livery that is showing casing in different operating areas across South Wales.
In addition, there are planned activities as follows;
· Spot the bus competition. The public are invited to send pictures on Twitter when they spot the jubilee bus out on the road. The best picture will win a month’s free travel and there are also some love 2 shop vouchers up for grabs. Follow @stagecoachwales for a chance to win.
· There is a Jubilee bus colouring picture, free to download on the Stagecoach website for children to enjoy. Adults are welcome to have a go too!
