Announced on Monday - the 'Shep and Jo show' will be going on a tour of the county in the coming month. The bus - as you may guess is Shep's (David Sheppard) and is Western National 420 - 270 KTA. Many of you will know it was previously owned by WNPG but was sold onto David in the closing months of last year. Since then he has worked tirelessly to get her into good working order and has done a sterling job with little outside help as it seems! He even went to the length of taking his own annual leave to try and get 420 on the road by July 26th when the tour will hopefully start. Of course this is the day after the annual Plymouth Hoe rally which again hopefully she will attend.
If you're interested the bus will be visiting Ilfracombe, Great Torrington, Paignton, Plymouth and Sidmouth. I would presume in that order but don't take my word for it!
The MOT for 270 will be on Friday so best of luck to Shep for the test! It can't be the easiest of things getting a 48 year old bus through an examination for a far newer vehicle!
