YOUNGSTERS interested in buses will be in their element at a new junior club, which is being launched at Wythall Transport Museum next Saturday (April 7).

Members of the group, aimed at those aged between eight and 16, will meet up on the first Saturday of each month after that to find out more about the museum and how things work. They will also be able to clean the venue's classic buses.

Museum trustee Dave Taylor said: "We often get told by visitors their son or daughter loves buses and can't wait to join us when they get older.

"We thought a juniors club would be an ideal way to get them started."

The club will be run by Sara Gray who works in a local nursery school and there is a goody bag for the first 20 new members, as well as, possibly, a trip around the block in one of the new buses.

The club runs for two hours - from 11am to 1pm - and costs £2 per month.

Easter Sunday and Monday (April 8 and 9) will also be the first days the museum is open this year. Visitors can ride on the old buses through the countryside and enjoy miniature train rides.

The museum will be open from 10.30pm on both days.
