Station To Station Fun

The Queen’s 90th was celebrated in style at Blackburn, Accrington and Burnley Manchester Road on Saturday 11th June.  Blackburn led the way with cycle rides and guided walks converging on the station to hear a local choir and receive teas, coffees and muffins.  At Accrington Virgin Train’s Sammy the Bear made a special visit to the station to greet the local children and hand out special rock.  Last but not least there was plenty going on at Burnley Manchester Road.  On Sunday 12th June the Royal Rambler (aka DalesRail) took walkers into the Dales for a great day out in the countryside.  All in all it was a great weekend with lots of fun.
