Looking Back In Time! – Mayor Morey Launches Bus Service.

This is a picture of the first bus service on to the new Coppice Farm Estate.

I was Chair of the West Midlands County Council Passenger Transport Committee at the time and my Wednesfield colleague was Councillor Arthur Morey, Mayor of Wolverhampton, who launched the service.

This was in 1983 and the new bus service was launched to give Coppice Farm residents a local links bus service.

The first time I met Arthur Morey was in the very early 70’s, I asked him what his trade was? His response was “Well I am a bit of a Boffin!” I have never forgotten those words.

Arthur was a very good Local Councillor who went on to become Mayor of Wolverhampton in the 1983 /84 mayoral year. He represented Wednesfield North on the Borough Council for many years.
