Campaigners fighting to save Preston Bus Station from demolition baked a cake to celebrate the Grade II listed building’s 44th birthday.
Members of the Save Preston Bus Station campaign including Professor Charles Quick, from UCLan’s School of Art, Design and Performance, presented the cake at the station’s cafe ahead of the anniversary today.
He said the group’s plans for a parade to celebrate the bus station, which will be held on Saturday, November 2, were also going well.
Participants will meet in Lune Street at 11am before walking at noon to the Flag Market along Friargate.
Professor Quick said: “I think there will be a sizeable crowd and we’re looking to see if we can get a band involved.”
The group have printed fliers and posters to advertise the event, which has been arranged with the assistance of Preston Council.
The council is yet to decide what to do about the bus station, after the Government decided to grant the building listed status.
It could yet proceed with its original intention to demolish the building and build a new station in its place.
