So, to sum up the Autumn's changes, we've got the new Herefordshire contracts, new Ticketer machines, then Worcester City/Vale of Evesham/Malvern changes come October, complete with "the Malverns" branding and was "the fifties" mentioned for the Evesham's? Plus refurbed B7RLE's for the 144, exciting times! (Would be good to see 144 branded up nicely too!)

Also, does anyone know if the Best Impressions stylised "village links" branding is set to appear on any bbmarketing/vehicles?

Ooh, yes I like that. They should put the 'Village links' logo on the side of the bus alog with the route numbers that are under the contract! As long as they are not interworked with other services that is... :D

No idea if any vehicles will get that branding, but seeing as 53802 must be allocated to the routes because of the seat belts, I can't see why not.

According to my reckoning-up, WR will need to receive 5 more buses by the time the full services restart for the sixth-form college on 11th September, but is POSSIBLE that one or two of the buses for the new Herefordshire services MIGHT utilise existing vehicles by interworking with the current (old) non-Herefordshire timetables and running-boards (?)

I imagine we still need a spare Solo with seat-belts.

As the service changes planned for October 16th, STILL haven't appeared, as "Applications to .... ", - in "Notices & Proceedings", I am wondering if they have been deferred again (ie: until the end of the October school half-term holiday) ??

Unless they'll get dispensation for shorter notice registrations, of which there seem to be a fair few around at the moment!

Registrations have been sent. They normally take some time to appear, especially this time of year when lots of things are changing.
