HUGELY popular Lymm Transport Day will be returning for its 11th annual event on Sunday, June 23.

The event, which started in 2013, showcases a range of vehicles including classic cars, military vehicles, vintage bicycles and steam traction engines.

Lymm Transport Day is run entirely by volunteers and all profits go to charity, with more than £46,500 being raised by the event in the last decade.

Last year £8,500 was donated to charities including St Rocco’s Hospice, Lymm Swimming Club and Warrington Community Transport.

This year is set to be a packed day full of live music, exhibits and stalls selling clothes, food and toys – so here’s everything you need to know.

At 9.30am vintage shuttle buses will begin transporting attendees from the official car park on Crouchley Lane into the village.

Inside the Village Hall, a miniature railway, courtesy of the Warrington Model Railway Club, will be on display.

An artisan market will be hosted by the Community Centre, and Lymm Heritage Centre will be hosting a new exhibition.

At Maple Lodge, on May Queen Field Drive, Lego displays courtesy of Northern Brickworks will be on show and Manchester Aviation Art Society will be hosting an exhibit and live painting session.

At 10.30am a drive-in parade featuring 100 vehicles will make its way down Eagle Brow, round The Cross and up Pepper Street.
