The Bishop of Salisbury, the Right Revd Nicholas Holtam, joined workers from Salisbury Reds buses to remember 12 colleagues who gave their lives during the Second World War. 

Bishop Nicholas offered a blessing at the firm’s memorial plaque, previously located at the station in Endless Street.

“We have moved the plaque to our new travel information office in New Canal,” said Salisbury Reds managing director, Andrew Wickham. 

“So it seemed right to invite Bishop Holtam to our opening ceremony. He has kindly agreed to help us commemorate the lives of those colleagues who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country 70 years ago.

“It is important, to all of us at Salisbury Reds, that we remember our fallen colleagues - and the plaque will be given pride of place at the new office here in the centre of the city,” added Mr Wickham. 

“The fact that we are also beginning a bright new chapter in the history of bus services in Salisbury, by moving here from the old station, is also fitting.”
