Arriva’s Heritage Fleet bus assists award winning Chef Tom Kerridge to switch on Marlow’s Christmas Lights
One of the great things about this time of year for Arriva’s Heritage Fleet, is all the exciting and fun celebrations they get involved with.
Last week was the Lord Mayor’s Show and this week it’s helping double Michelin Star Chef Tom Kerridge, switch on the Christmas lights for Marlow Town Council, by supplying them with their open top iconic Red Routemaster bus.
If you want everyone to see the Celebrity you’ve chosen to start the festive celebrations, then what better way than an open topper.
Marlow Town Council reserved a space for the bus in the centre of their beautiful Georgian main street, and invited Tom a local resident and owner of the famous Hand and Flowers gastropub to switch on the lights.
Tom along with his wife Beth, opened The Hand and Flowers in 2005 and within a year had won his first Michelin star. Two years ago he made it a double – becoming the first pub to have ever been awarded two stars.
Judging by his reception, Tom is a very popular local and as he said before switching on the lights,
“Marlow is an amazing town, I’m so proud to be a part of it, and feel very much that it’s my home”
Arriva are extremely proud to be invited to assist Marlow and Tom with the launch of this year’s festive season, and thank them both for the opportunity.

Arriva London paints a bus Platinum to celebrate 1,000 staff giving to 160 charities every Pay day through Payroll Giving
When Arriva London started their Payroll Giving promotional program in 2014, encouraging more staff to get involved with giving to charity through the Payroll Giving scheme, they didn’t realise how welcoming the staff would be to the idea, and how generous the Payroll Givers would be.
The Arriva London Heritage Fleet is the company’s way of maintaining a moving history of London.
Whilst the London Overground service between Gospel Oak and Barking is being electrified and the stations modernised, a replacement bus service is in operation to cover the closure.
