PUPILS at a Cotmanhay school were visited by staff from local bus company Trent Barton to have a lesson on using public transport.

Teacher Tamara Riddell arranged the visit for students at Bennerley Fields School to offer them the chance to experience catching a bus.

Cheryl Holland, from Trent Barton, said: “We’ll be there with our company mascots, the Mango men, to work with groups of children with learning difficulties to give them an insight into how to catch a bus in the hope it will be fun enough to encourage them to be confident to use public transport in the future.”
