Ready, teddy, go..
by David Simister

BRING your teddy bear to a West Lancashire railway this weekend and you can travel half fare, the site's operators have said this week.

West Lancashire Light Railway said on Monday (May 2) that it's urging children young and old to bring their beloved bears with them to its annual Teddy Bears’ Outing this Sunday (May 8) at its base in Hesketh Bank.

A spokesperson for the railway, based on Station Road, said:

“The West Lancashire Light Railway will be holding its annual Teddy Bears’ Outing on Sunday, from 11.30 am to 4.30pm.”

“If you ride our train to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise!”

Although admission to the site itself is free, tickets to ride on the train (valid for unlimited rides all day cost £4 for an adult, £3 for children, £3.50 for senior tickets and £10.50 for family tickets.

However, anyone who brings a teddy bear with them will get to travel for half price.
