Incident report

Team members responded to calls for help from a local bus company when the Vicki snowMacclesfield to Buxton service became stranded in deep snow on the A537.  The bus was pulled from the drifts and was assisted to turn back for Macclesfield.  One passenger was travelling to a church service in Buxton and team members obliged by taking her to the church door. You could say we like to provide a “service”.
