Preston Bus Station Parade

Hello. I pass on news from BlogPreston  that there is to be a banner-led parade in Preston in favour of the recently  grade 2 listed bus station. It’ll be on Saturday,  November 2, starting at 11am outside the Corn Exchange pub, Lune Street, and  then processing up to the city’s main square – the Flag Market – by 12 noon. The  organisers would welcome people planning to join to ‘book’ a place on Eventbrite  website.
Have you ever heard of a  public parade in favour of a 1970s ‘Brutalist’ building? Neither have I;  but here it is! Feel free to Facebook, Twitter, blog, or write charming  postcards with fountain pens, to spread the news.
