With an aim of convincing fans that the coach was parked in the wrong place, it was later revealed that it was in fact a prank. DOUBLEDECKER CHURCH The Whisperer is always pleased to find a new first – and July saw the making of Britain’s first church on wheels, with a bishop celebrating mass on a double-decker bus. The bus – an idea from the Friends of Divine Mercy Scotland – visited different towns, including Paisley, Coatbridge, Greenock, Barrhead and Glasgow until Sunday (5 August). From confessions on the top deck and tea and coffee available downstairs, everyone was welcomed on the ‘Mercy Bus’. BLUESTAR’S HUNT FOR DRIVERS Bluestar transformed Hampshire County Cricket Club’s Ageas Bowl into a bus training ground, with the aim of finding more bus drivers for its routes across Southampton. Designed to get people interested in driving buses, nearly 100 residents were given the chance to get behind the wheel and take control of a double-decker.
