Jay-Jay the bus is rescued from the dirty scrap yard, where he was sadly gathering dust and cobwebs.
Feeling nervous yet excited, he is taken to an airport where he is magically transformed into a ‘Playbus’ full of toys, games and adventure.
A fictional tale based on a real life bus ‘Supersonic’, which flew in the imaginations of the many young children who visited it.
This is the fictional children’s story book about the Bewbush Playbus, which undertook play work around Crawley town.
The bus worked mainly in the new area of Bewbush, which as yet had nowhere for children to play.
The original bus was paid for from the Queens Silver Jubilee funding and was a project undertaken by the Girl guides South-East division. Together with the apprentices at Gatwick Airport and funding from BAA the bus was transformed into a bus to play on.
From Fact to Fiction the Playbus lives on.
The original bus was called ‘Supersonic Bus’, in the book he is given the name Jay-Jay as his number plate was JJK 261.
With a free cardboard cut-out model.
