My father used to work for Southern Vectis; he used to drive the school bus sometimes.
If he drove my school bus home would drop me off by Basketts Lane. I’d get off and make a cup of tea because they always stopped in Yarmouth for half an hour or more. The bus was always parked by the side of the church where that tree is in St James Street, and Dad would bring his conductress up with him for tea. I would have it ready by the time he got up there. Pat Burt nee Adams b1929
I went by bus to work at Whites in Cowes and caught the bus in the Square, outside Jireh House, and the bus went up the High Street. It cost 7/9 ( 7 shillings and 9 pence) for a weekly ticket which was a lot out of your pay when you were only on £2 or £3 a week. I was there from 1953 to 59. Nick Chandler b 1937
The bus stop was outside the Town Hall, and it cost me 2/6 to go to see my parents in Ryde. Blanche Kennard nee Dore b 1923
