Name a Bus!
We are delighted to announce we are naming the 9th bus after Lillian Bilocca
Big Lil, who was one of three outspoken sisters, was never afraid to speak her mind and to stand up for what she thought was right. It was after the trawlers St. Romanus, Kingston Peridot, and Ross Cleveland went down in early 1968, resulting in the loss of 58 men, that Lil began her war against some of the most powerful names in the fishing industry. This battle, and the high profile she achieved was to turn Lil into a national figure, and a local folk hero.
The winning entry was Andy from Hull, 'a thankful Hull trawlerman's son.'
