An Alexander Dennis Ltd (ADL) Enviro200 is seen here working Matlock local service M4 on Hazel Grove in the Hurst Farm Estate on Saturday, May 12. As of the end of May, G&J Holmes is giving up service bus operation to concentrate on a small number of school and coaching activities with a dramatically reduced fleet. The M1/4 services will be taken over by Stagecoach Yorkshire from its Chesterfield Depot on a revised timetable that sees the total withdrawal of the Saturday timetable, and changes to weekday times. Daniel Stone took the picture, and thanked driver and fellow enthusiast Andrew Bagshaw for allowing the image to be taken.
