Today Matthew was at his day service. Also with new buses going into service on today, it is likely that some of the First Potteries Scanias would be withdrawn from service, Matthew got up around 08:00 and had toast and orange juice for breakfast. The bus turned up just before 09:00 and it was the usual Shelton Care Group DV10 JCU.
