03/06/2012 - Maynes Coaches join in Queens Diamond Jubilee celebrations
Maynes Coaches were proud to assist Elgin Rotary Club when they organised a Street Pageant that passed through Elgin Town Centre along to Cooper Park on sat the 2nd June.
The event was planned to mark the start of a feast of entertainment in Elgin to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Floats from, Moray Youth Council, St Giles Theatre Group, Primary Schools were joined by horses & carriages as well as vintage and modern buses from each decade of the Queen´s reign.
Three days of celebration were held including the well known Motorfun event, the Street Pageant, Music in the Park, Children´s Games and events and much more.
Motorfun was held on Sunday the 3rd in Cooper Park with New Cars, Vintage Cars, Motorbikes, Show ´n Shine, It´s a Knockout and much more.
During the pageant our vintage Bedford OB coach was given pride of place behind the Dufftown pipe band as they made their way through Elgin city centre. On Sunday our OB was joined at the Motorfun event by one of our Neoplan V.I.P class coaches to allow the many thousands of people the chance to get up close to our coaches and see the changes made in coach travel during the Queen’s reign.
