There is another Lancashire Bus Running Day this Sunday afternoon, 13th July, between about noon and 6 pm. Old preserved buses (a few from Liverpool Transport and the MPTE) will run from Ormskirk and Burscough bus stations, and there will be a real ale bus, plus music and other events and static stands. There are also some nice pubs close by.
Travel will be free, but the Merseyside Transport Trust does ask for donations to help with maintenance of the vehicles; do try to have nice summer afternoon out in the area. For more details, have a look at the trust's website: here.
If, on the other hand, you're thinking of going into Southport town centre tomorrow afternoon, don't forget the Orange Lodge will be out in force, so pubs will be either full of their followers or closed completely.
Thanks to Mike Perkins of the local CAMRA branch for the information.
