Before car ownership, the bus was the only means of seeing life outside the village.
I am sure that there are many who will remember the trips organised by various organisations and individuals during the 40s, 50s and 60s. Holidays to Blackpool and Yarmouth were organised for many years, starting at the Club. I seem to remember that these were organised by Mr Ray Ward. Cricket followers hired Morley’s buses to go to Trent Bridge. During the 50s, Â a regular Saturday night bus picked up the young folk from Ollerton, Edwinstowe and Bilsthorpe, for an evening at the Astoria, or Palais in Nottingham. What happened to those lovely comfortable buses?
Whilst on holiday in Malta in 1980, I was sitting at a bus station and glanced at a bus that seemed rather familiar. I walked round the back of the bus, and I could see quite clearly, underneath a coat of paint, P.W. Morley and Son.
