Merseytravel in conjunction with Trust In Yellow and Southport Football Club have erected an advertising sign on Southport Station which the Trust and Club will be using to advertise forthcoming matches and events. The sign is just outside the ticket barriers on Southport Station and over the next few weeks it will be put to good use with posters advertising Pre-Season Friendlies and Family Funday being put on display.
Over the past two years Trust In Yellow has been successful in erecting ‘Next Match’ signs in various sites. We are delighted to say that working with Haydn Preece a site has now been secured on Southport station. This will not
only be excellent for advertising future matches but also T.I.Y. and other club news.
Phil Carder went down to Chapel Street for T.I.Y. to meet the station manager, Mike Keating. He has agreed to let us have the use of an existing sign just to the right of the passenger exit.
It is the one with the ‘Park or Ride’ information on in the picture and is already conveniently painted in yellow!!
As you are aware, we have been working for some time to explore ways in which the club could improve facilities for our disabled supporters in wheelchairs. On Wednesday 6th May, Matt Cochlin from Bentley Fielden Ltd in Todmorden brought over a mobile lift to Haig Avenue to see if it would be suitable to lift wheelchairs into the main stand as NADS (National Association for Disabled Supporters) feel this would be a much more inclusive way of providing improved accommodation for disabled supporters rather than building separate cover.
Alan Scarisbrick, Phil Carder and Martin Robinson were present as was Haydn Preece from the club. Everyone was very impressed with the lift and the next stages are to cost any changes needed to be made to the stand and to see if these changes would be acceptable to Authority safety officers.
