A North Wales bus driver is calling for your vote to become the region's top 'Busketeer'.

Hefin Roberts, aged 41, who grew up and went to school in Rhewl, has been nominated by passengers for Arriva's bus driver of the year award after driving for the company for 13 years.

Mr Roberts, who lives in Connah's Quay, will go head-to-head with four other North Wales bus drivers to be named the region's top 'Busketeer'.

He said: “Being nominated makes me feel very proud to work for Arriva and I feel extremely happy that my passengers feel I am worthy of such an award.

“To win would make me feel very honoured. It would be a very proud moment for myself, my family, passengers and my employer.

Mr Roberts said he enjoyed being a bus driver as it gave him the opportunity to meet and help people.

"I enjoy helping with new driving training and ticket information, or customers with timetable information and general enquiries.

He added: “My favourite route to drive is the X4 route which starts in Chester and finishes in Mold. This route incorporates many different scenes throughout the journey, from the city centre of Chester, known for its history, Roman walls and Tudor-style timber buildings to name but a few, continuing south to the Business Park , a large landscaped business environment, before arriving at Houghton Retail Park.

"The journey continues through Flintshire, passing through the historical village of Hawarden and the town of Buckley before arriving at it final destination, the market town of Mold.”
