HOP ON FOR A TRIP TO THE PAST

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

CHIL­DREN took a jour­ney back in time when they boarded a vin­tage bus.

Early years pupils from St Mary’s School in Amer­sham re­cently went on a vin­tage bus trip to link in with their topic on trans­port.

Mr and Mrs Paskell own a vin­tage red bus and charged the chil­dren £1 each to re­ceive a ticket via the old ticket ma­chine and go on board.

The dou­ble decker bus took them along from Old Amer­sham to Lit­tle Mis­senden and back again and the chil­dren thought it was sim­ply ‘mag­i­cal.’

Pupil Gabriella said: “I loved ring­ing the bell as it was very loud.”

Isaac said: “You can see for miles and miles from the top of the bus.”

Ed­ward said: “It was very ex­cit­ing go­ing up­stairs in the bus.”

Mrs Si­mons, who or­gan­ised the bus trip with Mr Paskell, said: “The whole day was a huge suc­cess. Huge thanks to Mr and Mrs Paskell who made the day so de­light­ful for our chil­dren.”
