Happy 100th Birthday

Happy 100th Birthday Margaret

23 September 2020

West Midlands Worcester and Warwickshire

Diamond Bus Redditch were honoured to be part of the birthday celebrations for a very special lady last week.

Friends and relatives of Margaret Webb asked if we would be able to help them deliver a 100th Birthday surprise. Margaret who used to be a Bus Conductress and still has a great interest in buses was delighted to see Diamond Buses arrive at her celebrations. We delivered the very important telegram from the Queen along with a bouquet of flowers from the Diamond Bus team.

Margaret was very keen to go onboard to have a look around our modern Streetlite bus and commented how different things are now to how they were back then. She reminisced with our Redditch Operations Manager, Kevin Collins, who also used to be a Bus Conductor and had bought along a vintage ticket machine to help bring back some of those memories.

After a fine rendition of Happy Birthday we left Margaret to continue her celebrations with her party full of entertainment and family and friends. We were very proud to be part of Margaret’s special day and wish her very many happy returns.
