And here is a service 20, operated by the same bus as the 320 above, but now in plain First barbie livery!
Renumber that all as 3 and you have the first piece of the Cherry jigsaw.
Cherrys don't just come in 3s; they also come in 4s ...

But there is a snag. Iris is not at all happy.
Pensioners claim plans to change two bus routes could leave them housebound. More than 50 people are appealing to First to cancel its proposed alterations to the 20A and 34A services which travel through Talke Pits. Both services currently stop in Chester Road, but this would be replaced with a stop along Monument Road. Dozens of elderly people, some who have been using the services for more than 60 years, fear without a nearby bus stop they will be 'isolated' or forced to spend hundreds of pounds on taxi fares.
But Iris is right; the routes in the area used to do a little wiggle via Chester Road ...
Needless to say scaremongers are now booking with competitor Red Funnel because they don't want to travel on "dangerous" boats. Short memory applies. In 2006 one of the Red Funnel boats smashed into the loading ramp, damaging ramp, ferry and cars.
