Junior City Council enjoy bus trip on Women’s Day

On the bus, Tyron Jeyi (standing), GO GEORGE community liaison officer, shared interesting information about the bus service with the council members. They were rather disappointed to learn that no babies had been born on a GO GEORGE bus yet.
Several members of the George Junior City Council will remember Women’s Day 2017 as the day of their first GO GEORGE bus ride. The youngsters planned a community outreach on this special day saluting the women of South Africa, and decided to hop on a bus to the Rosemoor Service Centre for the Elderly. Here they treated the ladies to a song and a dance, followed by tea, coffee and cupcakes.
The bus dropped the Junior City Council members at a bus stop right in front of the Rosemoor Service Centre for the Elderly. They came armed with freshly baked cupcakes and muffins to treat the elderly ladies. From the left are Anika Hofmeister, Lené Conradie, Robin Franklin, Megan Bartels, Melissa Vorster (Junior Mayor), Micaela Bester, Brandon Nipper, Tyrese Grobler, Cara Kaboni, Juanique van Rooy and Tyron Jeyi, GO GEORGE community liaison officer.
The junior council members were most impressed with the George Transport Hub in the CBD and of course, like most first-time visitors, the impressive passenger statue made from scrap metal, where photos are always being taken. During the bus trip, Tyron Jeyi, GO GEORGE community liaison officer, shared interesting information about the bus service with the council members and enjoyed the type of questions they asked. One young lady wanted to know whether any babies had been born on a GO GEORGE bus yet. Unfortunately, Tyron had to admit that nothing that exciting had happened on the buses yet.
It was an honour to be photographed with the eldest member living at the Rosemoor Service Centre, Aunt Sophie du Preez, aged 96. With her are, from the left, Melissa Vorster, Junior Mayor, and Karen Lamberts and Tyron Jeyi of GO GEORGE who accompanied the Junior City Council on the bus.
