Employees honoured for long service

15 Jan 2015

Stagecoach Manchester thanked 36 members of staff, for a collective 1,035 years of service, at the company’s annual Long Service Awards, held last month.

The awards recognise employees who have worked with the local bus company for 20 years or more, with particular commendation going to systems specialist, John Pollock, who has worked with the firm for 46 years, and drivers, Frank Llewellyn and Roberts Usher, who have each clocked up 44 years’ service.

Stagecoach Manchester staff were presented with their awards by traffic commissioner for the North West of England, Beverley Bell, at The Lowry Hotel, Manchester.

Christopher Bowles, managing director of Stagecoach Manchester, commented: “We are so proud of all of our long serving employees in Sharston and their continued commitment to Stagecoach Manchester. They make up part of a loyal and dedicated team, which delivers excellent service for local people and has helped us to establish a reputation as one of the country’s leading bus operators.

“All recipients of a Long Service Award have at least 20 years’ service with some celebrating as much as 40 years of commitment to the company.

“The Long Service Awards have given Stagecoach Manchester the opportunity to show our genuine appreciation to the people who make the company what it is.”
