  • The Grey Knights are a small group of Sarratt villagers who manage and maintain a lovely 1932 Bedford WLB single deck bus.
    The bus is owned by a former villager, Dennis Jenks, who is known as the White Knight for all the fundraising he did on behalf of village organisations.
    Membership of the Grey Knights is open to all and costs £25 pa which goes towards the cost of maintaining the bus.
    Sarratt Village organisations are welcome to use the bus for outings or fundraising given that it and a driver are available.
