A total of seven ex Brighton & Hove East Lancs Loylne bodied Dennis Tridents are now to join fleet, those are 721-7 W821-7NNJ, as previously reported some have already arrived, been repainted and are now in service, those that have not yet arrived are expected shortly. 721 spent a breif spell with Hedingham Omnibuses before it arrived in Dereham last week.

Once the above have all arrived and entered service Optare Excel 2's 216-8 W216-8PRB and 229 X229WRA are expected to be cascaded to Hedingham Omnibuses at Clacton.

Also due to leave the fleet are Plaxton President bodied Volvo B7TL's 701/3/7 V301/3/7LGC, these will be joining eighteen simlar examples from Go Ahead London for single door conversion and refurb and will join the Chambers fleet in due course. 701/7 have already left Dereham with 703 remaining in service for the moment.

The final Costessy Park & Ride liveried Mercedes Benz Citaro G expected 805 BX54UDK remains away at Hants & Dorset Trim.
