This morning in my Merseytravel Role, I took part in the official opening ceremony of the Annual Birkenhead Ferstival of Transport, held in Birkenhead Park. 

Part of the opening ceremony was to present a cheque for £150 to Sarah Harte, Wallasey resident and student of Weatherhead Media and Arts College, who was the winner of the competition to design the cover page of this years programme.  Well done Laura, a great design.

Web Stanley CarBefore we opened the event we were treated to a tour of the park in the Stanley Steam Car, a real experience.   The festival is on today, and tomorrow and is well worth a visit.   You can read more about the festival and access the event timetable by clicking HERE.

My thanks to Ken Fretwell and his team of volunteers for organisng a spectacular event, and one which I hope will grow year on year.
