Bus talk as history group gets moving again

The first public meeting of Wellington History Group since the start of the coronavirus crisis will feature a talk about a Shropshire bus company.

The event, the group's first since February 2020, is at Wellington Library on September 16 at 7.30pm, and social distancing and a face covering will be required.

Title of the illustrated talk by bus historian Glyn Bowen is "The Shropshire Omnibus Association." Various local bus operators, including Brown's and Cooper's, came together in 1931 to form the association which ran services on two main routes out of Wellington – to Trench and Donnington, and to Oakengates and Wrockwardine Wood, routes also covered by the Midland Red.

After over 40 years of operation the SOA was finally taken over by Midland Red in 1978.
