WHAT’S HAPPENING
Free classic bus rides all day from Market Place, Whittlesey to Peterborough, Yaxley (for Yaxley Festival and Car Show) Ramsey Rural Museum for Fenland Classic Car Show, March, Turves and Thorney.

Tributes to Morley’s of Whittlesey and late Cambridgeshire coach operator Cyril Kenzie. Around 50 vehicles are expected.

Two special tributes are being paid at this year’s Fenland BusFest, the tenth annual event based at Whittlesey Market Place and offering free bus rides across much of Cambridgeshire.

Firstly, much-missed Whittlesey-based family-owned bus and coach operator Morley’s would have been 100 years old this year, Formed in 1922 as the Whittlesey Bus Service, Morleys ran buses from the town to Peterborough seven days a week until 2005, as well as services to Turves.

Legendary Shepreth, Cambridgeshire coach operator Cyril Kenzie died at the age of 93 last year, having been involved with Kenzies of Shepreth from 1947 until operations ceased in 2019.

As a tribute to Cyril there will be a special display of former Kenzies vehicles at BusFest and several will be on service.

The only former Morley’s vehicle currently roadworthy, Mercedes-Benz F839 FTX, will be running a shuttle service from Ramsey Town Centre to the Classic Car Show at Ramsey Rural Museum, this venue also being served by BusFest vehicles.
