Joe’s giving up a safe drive home
One wonders how many lives Joe Walsh has possibly saved in his 14 years driving the Dannevirke Services and Citizen’s courtesy bus.
Joe has served many hours behind the wheel picking up clients to take them to the club on Friday and Saturday evenings, returning them safely to their homes often fairly late at night.
Joe says he has thoroughly enjoyed the role and has stayed on as long as he could but reluctantly now has to give it away. He thanked his wife Josephine for putting up with the lonely evenings while he was out on the job.
Services and Citizen’s Club President Peter Shaw said at Joe’s farewell on Friday evening that Joe did many other things in the club — putting stock away, minor repairs, gardening and looking after the snooker tables.
“Joe is what the club is all about,” he said. Manager Joanne Jones said Joe’s friendly help and permanent smile would be sorely missed.
