It was ‘all aboard’ for the start of National History Month at Care UK’s Kingsleigh care home in Woking this week, as the residents and team joined in an afternoon of celebration of buses and local history.
The star of the ‘On The Buses’ afternoon was Robert Peters, the relative of a resident and a former bus driver with London & County buses. Residents and team members also joined in by reading poetry.
Activities Coordinator Pauline Dolan said: “Peter looked wonderful dressed in his old uniform. He handed out old-fashioned tickets to the audience before the talk began and then he told some very entertaining stories about his time as a driver and about the history of the routes he used to travel.”
Pauline continued: “The residents had a lot of fun. Most of them have lived in the area all their lives and Peter’s stories triggered happy memories as well as being entertaining and informative.”
