A MUSEUM dedicated to the history of milk bottles is hoping Globe readers can add to the collection.

Steve Wheeler turned his home in Malvern, Worcerstershire into the unique museum that has, so far, churned up an impressive collection of 20,500 British milk bottles and around 3,000 from overseas.

But he is need of some more from Wirral.

Steve, who is an adlactologist - the name given to milk bottle collectors - told the Globe: "I have a couple of milk bottles from Wirral, there must be many places that had dairies and I have missed their milk bottles.

"They are usually found in old farms and dairies, under sink cupboards, lofts, sheds, allotments and electricians even find me milk bottles under floorboards when rewiring houses!

"If anybody has any old milk bottles or cardboard caps, please don't throw them away.

"We are travelling to stay in the Wirral at the end of this month and can call on anyone who has any, or indeed, any info."

If you have any milk bottles for the museum, contact Steve on 01684 569656 or email milkbottlepast@hotmail.com
