Stagecoach and the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum have teamed up with St John’s Primary School, Ayr to encourage local people to visit Burns by Bus.
The pupils from the school took part in an art competition to design a Burns themed poster to be displayed on the rears of the 361 buses which serve the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum.
Two winners were selected from the school, pupils Cliona Riach and Nathan Chambers who received a Stagecoach goody bag and were presented with a certificate from the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum.
Emma McNae, Marketing Manager, Stagecoach West Scotland said: “A huge thank you all the pupils for entering the competition. We were really impressed by the entries and it was difficult to choose just two winners. We hope that these bright posters will encourage people from the local community to visit the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum by bus.”
Alexandra Beckett, Learning Officer, Robert Burns Birthplace Museum said: “We wanted to clearly advertise the fact that the 361 bus stops right outside Burns Cottage, and that both locals and visitors from further afield can use it to easily visit us here at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum. It’s been great to work more closely alongside a local school and judge the fantastic artwork designed by pupils at St John’s Primary... it was very tough to pick the winning entries! We hope they had as much fun as we did while we were working on the project.”
