Another quirk of the old bus is that the engine never seems to warm up and therefore never supplies hot air to the cab heater, so by the time it reached Pembury I was in need of the cup of tea kindly supplied by the caretaker of Oakley School.
Once the bus's on board heaters kicked in our day with the staff and pupils of Oakley School was a real delight. There was a wide range of learning difficulties amongst the pupils but everyone came on board, enjoyed the experience and left with a greater understanding of what life was like on the Home Front during WW2.
"A wonderful day and we're so grateful that all of our pupils were able to visit the bus - not just the ones currently studying WW2. Would recomend to all schools. Thank you so much!"
