Congratulations to all our long service awardees!

On Friday 6 May, East Yorkshire hosted its Long Service Awards dinner to celebrate some of its longest serving team members who had reached 25, 30, 35, 40 and 50 years of service.

The awards, which had been delayed in recent years due to the pandemic, celebrated 44 members of the teams who have reached award milestones in 2019, 2020 and 2021, together totalling 1355 years with the region's largest bus company. One employee, East Yorkshire's Purchasing Manager John Ellis, reached a phenomenal 50 years at the company.

Held at The Deep in Hull, the night was hosted by Area Director, Ben Gilligan and Managing Director Martijn Gilbert.

In addition to the awards ceremony, the celebration included drinks and a three-course dinner with plenty of time to chat and celebrate together.

Commenting on the evening, Ben Gilligan said: "It was great to finally get a chance to celebrate the long service and loyalty of many of our colleagues.

"I'm constantly humbled by the commitment of so many members of the team, whether its our drivers on the frontline or the supporting team members behind the scenes, everyone does an excellent job in keeping East Yorkshire moving."
