A Grand day out! 

Pleasureland is again to be the destination of the Sefton Hackney Drivers children’s day out. This will see around 300 children, who without this trip would probably not get to visit the resort, visit the fair ground in Southport for a day out to remember. This particular trip will mark the 25th anniversary of the day out, and although the day out has been to other destinations, they still come back to Southport, as it was the first venue for the day out.

The outing has a great party atmosphere, as the brightly colored and decorated cars roll into Southport, tooting their horn on arrival. A lot of hard work goes into the preparation of the outing, as the drivers ha
ve to do all the fundraising to finance the outing.

Pleasureland Marketing Manager Stephen Christian said he always looks forward to the taxi outings, “The drivers do a fantastic job for the kids and don’t need encouragement to get into the spirit of things, with prizes for the best decorated car and the best driver in fancy dress. They’ve organized outings to a number of destinations over the recent few years, but Pleasureland was the very first trip and they felt it was fitting to come back for the 25th anniversary”

The organizers would like to thank the 8 motorbike riders from Merseyside Police, particularly three of the riders who gave up their day off to escort the drivers from Liverpool to Southport. Also they would like to thank the people of Pleasureland, Southport and Sefton for their help throughout the year. But the biggest thanks must go out to the Taxi drivers themselves who gave up their day off’s for the drive and the fund raising.
