I happen to have been involved with the development of the new website for Crosville Motor Services, which went live a few days ago. If any of you ever visited the old site you will know that it was due for a makeover. It had served the company well since its inception but it needed to better reflect the improvement and expansion that has taken place recently. I’ve written most of the text and provided some of the photographs but the design and build was carried out by IvoryRed, a creative design company based in Weston-super-Mare.
This site has far more functionality and provides much more timetable information for people who use the local bus services that Crosville is now running. There are also pages for additional services, such as PCV training and bus storage as well as a special area for enthusiasts. I’m looking forward to adding to this area in particular as it focusses on the heritage activities of the company.
I would be interested to know what you think of it.
In other news, I was very pleased to hear from one of the chaps who took part in my Heritage Drivers’ Training Day recently. Apparently he drove one of the Lodekkas up to the Bristol Harbourside Rally and told me proudly that he didn’t miss any gears at all. Needless to say, I was quietly very satisfied to hear his news!
My next duty will be next Saturday, when I’m due to pick up a wedding party in Bristol and then trek southwards to a small village near Taunton.
