A one-stop shop for volunteering and tourist information in Wyre will be officially launched this week.

The i-bus is a mobile service combining a Visitor Information Centre for Cleveleys and the Volunteer Wyre outreach programme, which promotes volunteer opportunities and services.

Marine Hall in Fleetwood will host a celebration event today from 2pm to 5pm.

The Mayor of Wyre, Coun John Hodgkinson, will carry out an official opening at 2.30pm.

The event also features a free family flag making workshop where a local artist will help design and make flags.

Farmer Parrs of Fleetwood will also be bringing some of their animals. From Thursday, the i-bus will be parked on the promenade at Cleveleys every Thursday to Saturday, providing a full visitor information service.

From Monday to Wednesday the i-bus will be out and about promoting the services of voluntary organisations and the benefits of becoming a volunteer to local residents.
