Heritage Trams on No Tram Sunday

The Fleetwood Festival of Transport, commonly know as Tram Sunday, should have been held this weekend. Unfortunately in light of forecast 25 mph winds (occasionally gusting up to 35 mph) the event was cancelled for insurance reasons. The cancellation was all the more frustrating for the organisers, local businesses and visitors because Sunday afternoon turned out to be lovely and sunny, although admittedly there was a fairly stiff breeze blowing in the morning. The one bonus to the event being scrapped was that heritage trams were able to run all the way to Fleetwood Ferry on the Sunday of the enhanced heritage weekend, instead of turning back at Ash Street.
