Bus spotters in line for prizes

THE back of a bus might not normally be the most exciting thing to look at, but an Ecoisland competition is hoping to change that.

The Ecoisland team has invited people to send in pictures of the back of all eight of the Southern Vectis buses that have the organisation’s adverts on the back.

The adverts were put on the buses for free by Southern Vectis and the bus company is among those offering prizes for the winner.

First prize will win a three month Southern Vectis key card, three Wightlink Foot Passenger day return tickets, a GREENback card and a bike service with Al’s Bikes in Sandown.

There is one runner up prize of two Wightlink day return tickets and a free GREENback card.

To be in with a chance of winning, people must email photos of all eight Ecoisland bus backs by 11am Monday.

Entries need to be sent in by email, but the photos can be taken on any camera phone or digital camera, as long as it is a clear shot of the bus back. When you email your entry please include your name, date of birth, and address to hello@eco-island.org

Yet MORE FREE advertising for Rayban and his little gang.

How is it that businesses, which are mostly struggling (hence the cash mob idea), have to PAY for their advertising, yet this donut gets it for free?

There will be a backlash from those who have to pay and S. Vectis, Wightlink, CP and all the other "partners" in this lunacy may find that Egoisland are their onl;y advertisers and serves them right.

STILL waiting for the yearly accounts, now one month overdue.

I love reading the back of busses as I drive around. However, I've yet to find the one that says,
