Snap On Sunday - Up on the Hoe!
Firstly I would like to say a big thank you to all who were involved in the rally today. After the late start at around 10:45 the rally was very enjoyable throughout. Plymouth always seems to attract a large variety of vehicles from Gen 1 Transits and Mercedes Varios, right through to Routemasters and Enviros.
It is a shame that only the Hoe trips were offered this year rather than the usual variety of routes around Plymouth but as we all know money has been tight at WNPG in the last year after First Devon and Cornwall ceased to continue their support of the group. Target Travel did step in to offer some sponsorship for today which I'm sure was greatly appreciated by them.
A full range of photos will of course make it onto flickr in the coming day. As a sidenote don't forget its the 'Shep and Jo Summer Holiday' this week around Devon. Unfortunately Bristol SU 270 KTA was not available to take the journey up after some unfortunate problems with the brakes when David bought her from WNPG. So instead it will be a different vehicle for each day. Ilfracombe will see the newly restored Bedford cinema bus at the Landmark Theatre. Coming closer to home, Wednesday in Plymouth is due to be Plymouth City Transport's Leyland PD2 Open Topper.
