Stagecoach supermum goes the extra mile

18 Jan 2019

A bus driver from Thanet has had her hands full this week, driving buses, being a mum and entertaining a class of toddlers at the local nursery school.

Supermum Holly Newman has worked for Stagecoach at its Thanet depot for four years. Her daughter Evie attends the nursery in Ramsgate while her mum is out driving buses on the local Thanet 'Loop' bus route.

"They asked if I would come in and tell the kids about my job, sing some songs and help inspire their art project" said Holly.

"They loved the little Stagecoach gifts I brought along but were disappointed that I couldn’t have my bus with me!

"I'm now a pro at the nursery rhyme 'wheels on the bus'!"

The nursery are making some art from left over Christmas timetables which Holly supplied.
