Potters Bar bus garage holds family fun day
ROUTEMASTERS, old fashioned Green Line coaches and open-topped double deckers were all on parade at the weekend, as Potters Bar bus garage held its annual family fun day.
As well as being a nostalgic trip through time, the event also raised more than �1,000 for the British Heart Foundation.
Hertsmere deputy mayor Peter Knell was among the visitors, accompanied by his wife June.
The Furzefield ward councillor got behind the wheel of an old Routemaster, and was presented with a souvenir toy bus by garage manager Steve Bennett.
“It was very good – a really great day for people of all ages,” he said.

“We had a number of old fashioned buses from other parts of the country that made their own way down here for the day.
“We had the old Green Line buses, and they ran a service every half hour, alongside our regular service.
“And the company itself has three Routemasters, which belong to a group of current and ex employees called the 903 Club.
“We also had the open topper running a service, and that was a big attraction for the kids.”
