Safeguard Coaches is celebrating 100 years of being in the bus and coach business with a free celebratory event at Guildford Cathedral on Saturday 16th March between 12 noon and 4pm.  Not only is entry free, but so is a ride to the event on a heritage bus, as a fleet of 6 will be running on the day.

The buses have been provided by London Bus Museum and private owners to make the day a real treat for locals and the many transport enthusiasts expected to attend. This fantastic event also includes a whole host of transport-related activities including bus washing, a heritage bus display, arts and crafts, talks and stalls.

Andrew Halliday, Managing Director at Safeguard Coaches. “We’re all so proud to have reached this incredible milestone and want to share the celebration transport enthusiasts from all over England.  It promises to be a fantastic day, and I am looking forward to seeing everybody there.”

Attendees on the day will get the chance to purchase an exclusive centenary celebration booklet, proceeds from which will support The Fountain Centre at the Royal Surrey County Hospital. The charity has been chosen by the Safeguard team who lost a cherished member of staff to cancer last year.

The event will be opened by Guildford’s Mayor, Councillor Musak Miah, compered by broadcaster and transport enthusiast Dave Guest, and include a presentation by local historian David Rose.

As parking is not available at the Cathedral, the heritage buses will also be transporting visitors to the event from Guildford town centre, railway station and Onslow Park & Ride as well as from Park Barn which Safeguard Coaches has served since it was built in the 1950’s.
