THIS weekend will see the return of the hugely popular Lymm Transport Day, with hundreds of vehicles due to take part for the 11th annual event.

The event, which started in 2013, will showcase a wide range of vehicles whilst raising money for a number of charities.

More than 500 vehicles are due to take part on land and on water - so there’s a lot to look forward to this Sunday.

Starting at 9.30am, shuttle buses will start taking those attending from the official car park on Crouchley Lane into the village.

Before the parade begins, a number of artisan market stalls will be open at the Community Centre and a new exhibition will be hosted by Lymm Heritage Centre.

Lego displays created by Northern Brickworks are also worth a look at Maple Lodge, on May Queen Field Drive, as well as the exhibit and live painting session held by Manchester Aviation Art Society.

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

Make sure to get a good spot ahead of the parade, which begins at 10.30am, and will see more than 100 vehicles taking part in the route down Eagle Brow, round The Cross and up Pepper Street.

The parade is due to last around half an hour and conclude at 11am, which is when the May Queen Field will open to the public.

More than 450 classic cars will be lined up in the field to view, as well as recognisable cars from film and TV including Lightning McQueen from Cars and the Scooby Doo Mystery Machine.

One of only three working replicas of a Roman chariot, which has been donated by Colchester Archaeological Trust, will also be amongst the eclectic range of vehicles on display.

If you like motorcycles, make sure to take a look at the exhibits from the National Speedway Museum and World Champion racer, Peter Collins, who will be showing off some of his own bikes.

Cycling fans should keep an eye out for the range of heritage bikes on display by Veteran Cycle Club and Walton Hall Cycle Museum.

Hot food, drinks and vintage clothes will be available to browse and live music from Lucy Barlow and Uptown Monotones will also be playing through the afternoon.

Tickets are £6 each and £3 for children and can be purchased from the Lymm Festival box office at the Village Hall or on the day.

Canal boats will be lined up throughout the day to take a look at, including a 115-year-old National Historic Ship called Saturn.

To conclude the day, head down to the canal for the final event where a procession of boast will make its way through the village at 4pm.

The final shuttle bus will make its way back to the car park at 5pm.
