Mary Blackaby is a regular passenger on Stephensons 90 bus, travelling from her home in Witham to the town centre, often several times a day, as well as journeying to Maldon twice a week with her niece.
For her 100th birthday, as well as 115 cards, Mary was surprised to receive a bunch of flowers from the bus company, and a card signed by all the regular drivers.
Stephensons Managing Director Bill Hiron explained: “Once our regular drivers found out Mary’s great day was approaching, the whole team at our Maldon depot were keen to celebrate. Mary is one of our most loyal customers, and remains very independent. We were delighted to help her celebrate her special day, and we even got a lovely ‘thank you’ card back, which was fabulous”
