Michelle Hargreaves, Stagecoach East Midlands Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted to be introducing the Seasiders to Skegness. Tourism is a vital part of the town’s economy and a fantastic place for a family holiday.
“We want to support tourism in the town and what better way than the Seasiders? It’s all the fun of the seaside. We’re hoping they’ll be a hit with residents and tourists alike.”
The event runs from 11am to 4pm and features music, children’s entertainment with Mr Shiney, balloon-making, magic shows, a Wheel of Fortune, and a new timetable packed with money-saving holiday attraction offers. Stagecoach will also be making a £1000 donation to the charity at the launch.
