The world's first ATM was installed in a branch of Barclays
in Enfield, North London.

Reg Varney, star of "On the Buses", became the first person in the country to use a cash machine at Barclays Enfield on June 27th 1967.
They got a bigger turn out than expected as fans wanted to see Reg as he was already a well know star before he became famous for playing Stan Butler

regintheplank.jpg

Reg Varney appeared in 'THE PLANK'

The Plank is a 1967 British slapstick comedy short film made by Associated London Films.
The film had many stars of the day in it including;
 Tommy Cooper,Jimmy Edwards, Roy Castle
Just for fun can you name the other stars in the photo.

regintheplank.jpg

Reg also starred in the The Great St.Trinian's Train Robbery 1966 movie'
It was the 4th of 5 St.Trinian's films from the era.
St Trinian's was a fictional girls' boarding school, the creation of English cartoonist Ronald Searle

regintheplank.jpg

Doris Hare was to appear in the CONFESSION FILMS.
 Here we see her in '
Confessions from a Holiday Camp.'
 The 1977 comedy film.was the last in the series which began with
 'Confessions of a Window Cleaner'

regintheplank.jpg

Sadlly the plaque does not mention Reg.
The fan club will start a petition to get the plaque to include Reg Varney's name.
 Please sign the petition below and let's see if we can get
Reg's name on the plaque.

woodgreenbusdepot.jpg

The real 'Wood Green Bus Depot' in North London was changed into' Luxton Bus Depot; for the making of ON THE BUSES. The Depot was owned by Easter National Bus Company at the time.
Sadly the depot is no longer there but many of the streets around the area look the same as the 70's.
