Southport Pleasureland hosted its annual Emergency Services Day

Emergency Services workers and their families are being invited to enjoy another great weekend at Southport Pleasureland after the success of the first event. 

The attraction hosted its first annual Emergency Services Day concession last weekend, providing privileged access and unlimited rides.

Now the park is opening its doors again this Saturday and Sunday (September 19th and 20th) to thank those on the frontline who have done so much to save lives during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Due to the success of the event, Southport Pleasureland has now included a THIRD weekend, to be held on Saturday and Sunday September 26th and 27th, where the offer is being extended beyond just Emergency Service workers and will now include all Blue Light Card holders and carers.

A great time was had by all last weekend. Southport Pleasureland owner Norman Wallis submitted some great photos of people enjoying the weekend to Stand Up For Southport. 

He said: “Here are a few photos from one of our Emergency Services Days last weekend.

“A great day, everyone keeping social distance, wearing masks and staying in family bubbles, all making great memories.

“Don’t miss this weekend.”

Speaking in the Stand Up For Southport Facebook group, Michelle Boland said: “We had a great time today there – your staff are doing a wonderful job to keep everyone safe.”

Rachael Walmsley said: “We had a brilliant day! Park was lovely and clean, staff were amazing, wiping down between each ride, loads of hand sanitiser around and people were keeping at a safe distance!

“I was made up that even our one-year-old could get on a few rides.” 

Tracey Bailey said: “We had an amazing day, thank you Norman and your amazing team. The park was lovely and clean. There were loads of hand sanitisers around, staff were doing a fantastic job keeping everyone safe.”

Claire Carter said: “We came and had a fab day. The staff were really helpful and we watched the rides being cleaned after each use.” 

Southport Pleasureland will again invite emergency workers to treat their families to a great day out this weekend (September 19th and 20th) with exclusive rider wristbands at less than half price.

Anyone with valid Emergency Services ID will be able to purchase up to six of these wristbands for £12 each for unlimited rides on their day of choice, which means they can really treat their families.

Emergency Services wristbands can only be purchased in advance at Pleasureland’s online shop.  Those who hold eligible simply select their chosen date and, when the Emergency Services wristband appears as an option, just ‘add to basket’.  At checkout workers will need to enter a valid Emergency Services ID to receive the special price.

After booking emergency service workers will receive an email confirmation which they’ll need to bring with them on the day, along with the same Emergency Services ID they used in the booking process, to receive the wristbands. 

Park owner Norman Wallis said: “It’s a small thing, but something we can do to say thank you for looking after everyone.”

*The Emergency Services ID must be customers’ own; parties visiting the park must include the person whose ID it is.

The park’s standard ticket terms and conditions apply. 

Pleasureland’s emergency services days are open to workers in Ambulance, Police, Fire Service, all armed forces (full time and reserves), Doctors and Nurses, NHS workers, Prison officers, Lifeboat station workers, border patrol and anyone who is a direct employee of the emergency services.  

Blue light cards or defence discount cards are not valid for use with this offer.

Also in line with the Government’s new Rule of 6 Southport Pleasureland has capped the number of people per booking to six.
