Operations Manager for Weston, Jade Watson, revealed that First Bus Weston knows, first-hand, how much effort staff at Weston General Hospital have put in throughout 2020 to keep the town safe.

She said: “All the staff at the depot wanted to do something to recognise how hard our hospital staff have been working over the past 10 months to keep us safe. 

"We know many of them as they are regular customers on our buses so we know how committed they are.”

Similar hampers were passed out by First Bus depots across the South West.
