As I was sitting down in my comfy chair looking through my folder of interesting, unusual, odd, and those news items that just don’t fit anywhere else, mug of tea in hand, biscuits at the ready, preparing to write this week’s Last Stop, an email popped into my inbox from a gentleman by the name of Geoff Pullin, who had attached a couple of snaps from his recent cruise to the Isles of Scilly and Portland.

The first two show the local Community Bus, which operates a service around the town of St Mary’s during the summer season from late May to early September, taking around 17 minutes for each of its up to seven trips per day. Having taken a picture of the bus parked in Hugh Town, St Mary’s, Geoff says that when he read the wording on the side, he couldn’t work out whether it was a case of self-depreciation or a local joke. We’ll leave the reader to make up their own mind.
