Our summer exhibition "Are we nearly there yet?" was held on15th June 2019 at the Arnside Educational Institute. It focussed on Arnside’s transport during the decades illustrating the changes in transportation within the village over the years. The exhibition also coincided with the 100th anniversary of the Ribble Bus Company who served Arnside for over 40 years. and there was a vintage Ribble bus on the Prom for visitors to view as well as artefacts from the famous “red bus” company at the exhibition.


A related talk Any More Fares Please? by Bill Robinson was organised by Mourholme Local HistorySociety on the 24th April  in Yealand Village Hall. This looked at the development of rural bus services in our corner of the North West after the First World War, from the early pioneers to the eventual monopoly of Ribble Motor Services. The talk included a short film, made by Ribble in the early 1960s to encourage Lancashire County Council to complete the Preston and Lancaster by-passes.
