So this is Christmas…
…and what have you done? Quite a bit actually, looking back over the year. Our Rob Orchard has recently cast his eye over the past 12 months to put together our usual annual review. To see what stood out the most for Rob in 2014 check out your latest issue of B&CB (issue 1308, 26 December 2014). It always makes for good reading, not only giving a view of what has been, but hinting at and ruminating over what might be in store next year. After all, we cannot know where we’re going if we don’t know where we’ve been.
Rob is not the only one that’s been busy. Our very own Stuart Jones has been hard at it too, not least in his capacity as part of the judging panel of the International Bus & Coach of the Year, with the accolade this year going to the MAN Lion’s City G CNG. Let’s not forget new girl Kirsty either, who has done a sterling job of bringing you even more news and features. As always, a well deserved thank you goes out to all our contributors over the past 12 months too.
Looking back myself I was fortunate enough to have kept busy with various visits across the country, bringing you details of not only the latest news and developments but also some of the companies out there supporting your operations. Thank you to everyone that welcomed me and extended their friendship over the past 12 months. It makes me realise what a welcoming and people orientated industry we are all a part of.
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all our readers from Stuart, Chris, Andy, Sallyanne, Kirsty, Katie, Rob, John and Danny.
