Today is April Fool's Day and organisations around Bucks took full advantage of the chance to prank people. 

Here are the five best pranks we spotted:

  1. Arriva Beds and Bucks
    The bus company launched its “new” campaign encouraging passengers to “get that Arriva look” with their new beauty range. The new range includes lipstick and nail varnish in their fetching turquoise colour.
  2. High Wycombe BIDCo
    As part of their TeamUp2CleanUp campaign to rid the town centre of rubbish, HWBIDCo, which represents the town’s businesses, was “delighted” to announce it had given the famous red lion a makeover – turning it green.
  3. Cliveden National Trust
    The team at the stunning stately home announced some “exciting” news this morning – their perfectly manicured front lawns would be converted into a full-size football pitch. They said the 21,000 bedding plants would be replaced with AstroTurf and the South Terrace would see floodlights and stadium seating added, claiming “football’s coming home!”
  4. Marlow Churches
    The Twitter page for the four Marlow churches dropped the bombshell earlier today that the vicarage on The Causeway in the town would be having work carried out – to remove brickwork and tilt the famous sundial by 30 degrees to “bring it in line with British Summer Time”.
  5. MyMarlow
    There was almost outrage among Marlovians this morning when community page MyMarlow announced that it had learned of “controversial plans” for changes to Marlow Bridge in the event of a No-Deal Brexit – HGVs would be allowed on the weight limited bridge to ensure “ease of movement of HGVs impacted by delays at ports”. If the “controversial” move were to go ahead, the bridge’s famous arches could have been removed.
