Part Time Arriva London Bus Driver Joe Kerr starts "WalkTalk"
Joe Kerr one of Arriva London's part time bus drivers is taking a break from driving for a month this summer, to take part in Walk Talk http://www.walktalk.org.uk www.walktalk.org.uk.
"WALKTALK is a challenging nationwide initiative which aims to bring together people who may otherwise never meet, never talk and, almost certainly, never walk side-by-side.
Spanning the two hundred or so miles from Leeds to London during July and August 2008, WALKTALK is an opportunity for us all to focus on humanity and all that we have in common and to discuss openly, and with mutual respect, the areas where we may not agree.
It has been initiated by my wife Gill Hicks, a survivor of the 7 July 2005 London bombings who lost her legs that day, and myself (both of M.A.D. for Peace), and developed with Zulfi Hussain MBE of Global Promise, and the team at Together for Peace.
WALKTALK with us - for a mile or more - as we pass through your town.
We welcome all support - even if it's just a friendly word as we pass by.
WALKTALK is strictly non-political and non-partisan.
WALKTALK starts on July 19th and finishes in London on August the 17th.
Come and join us on the way, we look forward to walking and talking with you."

This year’s Lord Mayor’s Show, on 11th November, was an amazing cause for celebration, not only to welcome in the new Lord Mayor, but also to celebrate another year of Platinum giving by our wonderfully generous Payroll Givers.
This is a full time position in the Recruitment & Training departments of north and south London. Whilst predominantly based at Watson’s Road, Wood Green, the successful candidate will, on occasions, be required to visit and support the south London team based at Thornton Heath garage.
Route 175 operates with 16 double-deck vehicles from our Barking garage, with a twelve-minute frequency during the day. Route 103 operates from our Grays garage with 14 buses, with an eight-minute daytime frequency.
Preparations are complete for our display entry in this year’s Lord Mayor’s Show on Saturday. The Arriva London theme again this year is to celebrate the enormous contribution our staff make to charities through the Payroll Giving scheme. With over 1,000 staff supporting over 160 charities every week, and over £1,000,000 having been given in the last five years.
The buses, which were recently on display on the South Bank opposite the Houses of Parliament, will be seen throughout London and the City until November 12th, as a mark of respect for the sacrifices made by London’s service men and women, past and present.
