GO GEORGE MASCOT NAMED

And the mascot’s name is ... Georgie!

And the mascot’s name is ... Georgie!

The well-loved GO GEORGE mascot has been named at last, following a competition whereby the public was asked to submit possible names for the cute bus character. By far the most entries suggested that he should be called Georgie.

During a panel discussion last week, George Director of Civil Engineering Services, Harold Basson, was asked to draw a winner from the hat containing the names of all the competition participants who had suggested this name. The lucky winner of the naming competition is Anneke Andrews, who received a GO GEORGE drawstring bag with GO GEORGE promotional items and a multi-journey ticket from George Executive Mayor, Cllr Melvin Naik.

Anneke and her family moved to George a few years ago, and were most pleased to learn that a bus service of this calibre was about to roll out in their new hometown. “We love taking trips on the GO GEORGE buses, and will definitely put our multi-journey ticket to good use,” she said.

In the photograph:  Georgie was very excited to appear on a photograph, with a name, for the first time, and was at the Mayor’s office for this special occasion before anyone else on Monday morning. Here he is with, from the left, GO GEORGE Manager, James Robb, and George Executive Mayor, Cllr Melvin Naik, handing over Anneke Andrew’s prize. Anneke is the winner of the mascot naming competition.

 

En die gelukbringer se naam is … Georgie!

Die geliefde GO GEORGE-gelukbringer het uiteindelik ‘n naam. Dit volg op die naamgeekompetisie waaraan die publiek kon deelneem deur moontlike name vir die oulike buskarakter voor te stel. Verreweg die meeste deelnemers het voorgestel dat hy Georgie genoem word.

Tydens ‘n paneelbespreking oor die naam verlede week, is George se direkteur van siviele ingenieursdienste, Harold Basson, versoek om ‘n wenner te trek uit die hoed vol name van al die deelnemers wat hierdie naam voorgestel het. Die gelukkige wenner van die naamgeekompetisie is Anneke Andrews wat ‘n GO GEORGE-toerygsakkie met GO GEORGE-promosie-items en ‘n multiritkaartjie van George se uitvoerende burgemeester, rdl. Melvin Naik ontvang het.

Anneke en haar gesin het ‘n paar jaar gelede na George verhuis en was hoogs in hul skik om te hoor dat ‘n busdiens van hierdie kaliber binnekort in hul nuwe tuisdorp ontplooi sou word. “Ons geniet ritte op die GO GEORGE-busse en sal beslis ons multiritkaartjie goed aanwend,” sê sy.

In die foto: Georgie was baie opgewonde om vir die eerste keer mét ‘n naam op ‘n foto te verskyn en was heel eerste by die burgemeester se kantoor vir die spesiale geleentheid Maandagoggend. Hier is hy saam met, van links, GO GEORGE-bestuurder, James Robb, en George se uitvoerende burgemeester, rdl. Melvin Naik wat Anneke Andrews se prys aan haar oorhandig. Anneke is die wenner van die naamgeekompetisie.
