Bus prize for competition winner

14 Jan 2019

A young New Romney resident has won a year’s free bus travel after entering a competition featured in the KM newspapers last month.


Hollie Baker, 24, saw the Stagecoach Silver Anniversary supplement in the newspaper on her birthday. “I never thought I’d actually win” she said. “I saw it in the paper and thought how great it would be to have bus travel sorted for a whole year!”


She correctly answered the competition question that Stagecoach was celebrating its 25th anniversary in the south east.


The prize, worth over £1,200, was presented to Hollie at Folkestone bus station by Danny Millis, local Stagecoach Operations Manager.


Hollie, originally from Crayford, lives with partner Aaron in New Romney. She now wants to make the most of her bus ticket by using the bus as much as possible to explore the area. “I’ve only been living here a few months so I’m looking forward to exploring the area, especially up and down the coast on the ‘Wave’ bus service”.
