Have your say

THE latest picture in our popular PHOTO ALBUM MEMORIES series should strike a chord with Hucknall people who have travelled on Trent buses in the past.

It was taken in the 1980s before Trent merged with the Barton bus company.

The photo shows former Trent inspector Bernard Jefford with Betty Harley and her son, Paul, at the launch of weekly tickets.

The picture was taken on Hucknall Market Place, where Bernard was handing out timetables.

Bernard, who now lives in Worthing, on the south coast, has written his autobiography, ‘Once A Busman...’, which is due to be released on Monday October 1.

He describes the 21 chapters as ‘one man’s dash through the industry’ with Trent Barton as well as Nottingham City Transport, Bristol Omnibus, Stagecoach South and National Express Rail Replacement.

Bernard occasionally revisits Hucknall and last Friday he called at the town’s library, where he had a chat with Dispatch deputy editor Martin Hutton and former chief reporter Denis Robinson.
