We are happy to announce that the winning names of the competition have now been chosen by the Board of Trustees and our Independent panel member Maria Ford, who will be crowning the Queen at this year’s Bo’ness Fair. Winners have been informed.
The name of 1 bus will be ‘Beau Nessie’, which was submitted by 2 people, who will receive £150 each. A lovely name for our Community Bus in the town on the ness. The 2nd bus will be named ‘The Kinneil Connection’, which draws on the history of the town through the Kinneil Colliery, the Estate/Museum, Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway, the Kinneil Band and many others……plus the service connects Bo’ness to Edinburgh. This winner will receive £300.
One of our buses will be in the Fair Procession with residents of Dean Court and the new names will be on the buses in time for Fair Day.
Thank to to everyone who entered and also major thanks to local company Virtue Money who kindly sponsored the competition. We are also grateful to Tesco Bo’ness & Linlithgow, the Library, LIDL and the Blackness Shop for kindly agreeing to site our posters, entry forms and Voting Boxes. Finally, congratulations to the winners!
