A summer beach bash organised by Yellow Buses has been shortlisted for a top national award.

Hoardes of beach-goers enjoyed the free community event called Buster’s Boscombe Big Beach Bash in June.

Attractions included face painting, sand castle building, giant jenga and circus demonstrations while Yellow Buses’ mascot Buster Bear helped entertain the children.

Now the beach party has been shortlisted for the ‘Bus & the Community Award’ in the prestigious 2018 UK Bus Awards.

The winner will be announced at the final held at Troxy in London’s East End on November 20.

David Squire, Yellow Buses’ Managing Director, said: “Buster’s beach bash was a great event. It’s brilliant news that it’s been shortlisted for such a prestigious award.

“Yellow Buses prides itself on being at the heart of the community so to win an award like this would be a huge achievement. We’ll be keeping our fingers, and everything, else crossed for a successful result.”

More than 100 individuals, organisations and projects are due to be recognised at this year’s UK Bus Awards, regarded as the industry’s premier awards.
