Sneak peek at some of the buses coming to Morecambe for Vintage Bus Day

The Ribble Vehicle Preservation Group are gearing up for their Morecambe Vintage Bus Running Day and Display this weekend.

It was set up in 1972 by a small group based mainly in north Lancashire, most of whom were working in the bus industry.

They decided to save some of their favourite Ribble buses which were otherwise destined for the scrap heap.

They are a charitable trust, are all volunteers helping to restore and maintain classic buses and are always looking for new members, particularly from the younger generation.

Their collection contains buses from the early 1930s to the 1990s and are housed in a facility near Freckleton.

Known for their red and cream livery Ribble buses were a familiar sight in the 20th century, connecting towns and cities across the North West.

On Sunday, May 19, the group will be hosting their main event of the year, The Morecambe Vintage Bus Running Day and Display which is based at the Mazuma Stadium, Morecambe and will have free services running to and from Heysham Village, Carnforth and Bare.
