The Spring Festival is a resounding success at the Museum of Transport

THE LOCAL community again showed their support for the North West Museum of Road Transport in St Helens this past weekend.

People of all ages came to the museum’s Family Fun Day on Sunday, April 24, which featured a host of activities as well as arts, crafts and food stalls.

The kids are said to have loved the sand art, face painting and glitter tattoo activities.

The St Helens Star:

Cheshire children’s author Michael Bedard read stories from his latest book, ‘The Secret of Bluebell Wood’, and stayed to talk with families and sign copies of the book.

The illustrator, Carol Dooley, will also be present and copies of her work will be on sale.

Spring Day activities also included popular open-top vintage bus rides and the number of historic vehicles on display inside the museum.

Transportation Museum volunteer Sheila Rigby said children are always “fascinated” by the model trains, vintage buses and activities on offer.

Other events are planned in the summer, which helps raise funds to run the museum.
