The distinctive vintage double-decker red bus which has been seen around Sevenoaks all through the summer had a new conductor on board last week. Michael met passengers alighting at Knole and dropping off at the main points of the journey around the town. He met visitors who were from far and near – all said how much they appreciated and enjoyed the service. Some young children were having an adventure as they had never been on a double-decker before whereas others were just appreciating a trip from Knole House into town to do a little shopping and visit the Food Fair on the Vine before returning home.
The bus, which had been sponsored by Sevenoaks Town Partnership with assistance from Go Coach, Knole, Sevenoaks Town Council, Sevenoaks District Council, Sencio, Stag and all the volunteer bus conductors will not run after the end of September but all involved are hoping that it will return in the spring 2014.
