Bexhill boy bags open-top bus booty

27 Sep 2019

A teenager from Bexhill has bagged £500 after entering a competition last month.

Toby Godfree, 14, found a lucky code on board the Stagecoach open-top bus in Hastings this summer. “I never thought I’d actually win” he said. “I saw the poster on the bus and thought I’d try my luck.”

The competition, set-up in conjunction with More Radio, was launched back in July and Toby was randomly selected from over 500 correct entries.

Local Stagecoach Operations Manager, Louise Sills, presented Toby with his £500 prize at the St Leonard’s bus depot on Tuesday.

Louise said, “The open-top bus was all about seaside fun and adventure and the competition rounds off a fantastic season.”

“It’s not every day that people get to see behind the scenes at the bus depot, and it was a pleasure to meet Toby and his Mum and show them round.”

The Bexhill Academy pupil made several trips on the open-top bus that ran from Coombe Haven to Hastings Old Town between May and September. He also enjoys travelling on buses locally, his favourite route being the 101 between Hastings and Rye. Toby is also a keen photographer and plans to spend some of his prize money on a new camera.
