Bluestar marks Remembrance

Bluestar is again marking Remembrance, by displaying poppies on our buses over the coming weeks.

We are also offering free travel on all our buses for members and veterans of the nation’s armed forces on Remembrance Sunday.

People in this region are rightfully proud of our country’s military.  As part of our local community, we are keen to show our support for servicemen and women.

We will be helping to raise funds during November and most of our travel shops have poppy collection tins. The work our troops did - and still do now - in unimaginably hostile war zones is incredibly humbling. And we hope, by proudly displaying our poppies and raising awareness for the Royal British Legion, we’re backing our words with actions.

On Sunday 10 November, we welcome all those wearing their military uniform, displaying medals, or showing their military ID card on board our buses, and they may travel for free with us all day.

We would also like to encourage all drivers to pull over (where it is safe to do so) at 11am on 11 November as a mark of respect to observe the two minutes’ silence.
