Arriva London’s Heritage Fleet bus helps multiple Olympic Gold Medal Winner switch on Marlow’s Christmas Lights

  
  

Christmas comes but once a year but when it does it brings good cheer; and that’s exactly what Arriva London’s Heritage Fleet open top bus did when it helped Marlow Town Council turn on the town’s Christmas lights last Thursday.

The bus, positioned in the middle of Marlow High Street, was the ideal platform for the switching on ceremony, which was carried out by five times Olympic gold medal winner and local Marlow boy, Sir Steve Redgrave.

Sir Steve explained how being on the open top bus reminded him of his victory celebrations, returning to Marlow on an open top bus to show everyone his Olympic medals.

He also said how really nice it is to be part of the Marlow community as were his forebears, and that it was a huge honour to be asked to turn on the Christmas lights this year.

Accompanied by a massive countdown from the crowd packing the high street, which had been closed to traffic for the occasion, Steve pushed the plunger to switch on and reveal, to enormous cheers, the Christmas light display.

Arriva are proud to be invited to help Marlow and Sir Steve with the start to this festive season, and wish them and the people of Marlow all the compliments of the season.
