Vintage bus back on Brighton and Hove streets for Argus Appeal

The Argus: The Bristol KSQ The Bristol KSQ

A vintage Brighton and Hove bus will be back on the road for charity today.

Brighton and Hove Bus Company's 1953 Bristol KSW will operate a complete service with a conductor before being handed over to its new owners Seaford and District Motor Services.

The bus, affectionately known as “the old girl”, will service routes 5 and 6 around the city in aid of The Argus Appeal and The Martlets Hospice.

Seaford and District Motor Services' proprietor David Mulpeter said: “The Bristol KSW is an iconic bus to add to our collection of heritage vehicles and we are so pleased to be helping to keep her in the local area where she has worked for many years.”

In return for the bus, Seaford and District Motor Services will be making a donation to The Argus Appeal and The Martlets Hospice.

Brighton and Hove Buses is not receiving any proceeds from the undisclosed sale “fee” but instead inserted a “tie breaker” in their requirements, inviting bidders to make a charitable contribution.

The bus will service the 9.35am Hangleton to Patcham and 10.18am Patcham to Hangleton on route 5.

It will also service route 6 at 1.50pm Brighton Station to Sainsburys, 2.40pm Sainsburys to Brighton Station, 3.30pm Brighton Station to Sainsburys and 4.20pm Sainsburys to Brighton Station.

Reminds of B&H in the 1960's and earl 70's. Such a great twin town to grow up and live in. These lovely old buses were just great and I remember using them as a young lad. Great memories of a once fine B&H but alas now gone.
