For anyone wishing to attend this year's Cumbria & North Lancashire Open Day, it is at Morecambe's White Lund depot. 

The renumbering of service 2 to 100 marks the start of the centenary celebrations this year since the start of Ribble Motor Services. Some of you may have already seen Arriva Bolton's 2596 in Ribble anniversary livery, more happenings and details in the coming weeks.

For anyone attending Morecambe open day on Saturday, I attach the shuttle timetables here. Note that there is no official parking at the depot site, so using the shuttle buses is advised.

Excellent event today  - superbly well organised with masses of vehicles both static and operational.  The shuttles were great, with opportunity to ride on various vehicles old and new throughout the day.  The frequency meant not only that they weren't packed to the rafters (so actually provided enjoyable runs) but also that it was easy to switch between buses at interchange points.  Thanks to all involved in planning and running the day.
