Bank holidays in Morecambe don’t always produce hot, sunny weather but that’s what we had for both the Stagecoach open day and our sixth running day & display over the weekend of May 28/29. On the Sunday we had our usual display of buses and coaches on the promenade near to the Midland Hotel and on the car park of the Festival Market. Our free bus service operated from Carnforth to Heysham Village via Morecambe and was supplemented by the Bare Circular and some mystery trips.
With additional advance publicity and fine weather we were busier than ever with over 2500 recorded passenger journeys. The free services provided an opportunity to sample a variety of Ribble buses as well as guest buses from other operators. Let’s hope for similar good weather for our next big event at Lytham Hall on August 29th
