JUNE LECTURE - 'THE HISTORY OF YELLOWAY MOTOR SERVICES' BY PAUL BLACKBURN & MIKE ROYDS:

Out final lecture of the 2016/17 season takes place on Wednesday 7th of June 2017, and promises to be a cracker. Everyone over a certain age all knew the famous Yelloway Coaches which were once such a common sight in the area, and we are pleased to welcome Mr Paul Blackburn and Mr Mike Royds, who will be giving us a talk about this much loved and greatly missed service. Paul is now the new owner of the Yelloway Mobile Museum, which is usually based at the Bury Transport Museum, and can often seen at events around the area. As per usual the start time will be 7.30pm, and the admission is free, though of course any donations are always welcome, and we appreciate visitors buying refreshments or a raffle ticket, as the takings from these help to keep these entertaining and informative evenings going.
