Don't get stuck like this little fella!

Don't get stuck like this little fella!

It’s Christmas Eve. OK, you’ve had a few. Who hasn’t? But you simply MUST get that turkey home on time. As you stand swaying amongst the crowds on Dale Street you review your travel options…

What to do? What to do?

Luckily, before you allowed yourself to dragged to the pub you had the forsight to download this handy timetable of bus, train and ferry times from Merseytravel.

Huzzah! You, and Christmas, are saved. Now your only regret is not going the loo one last time…

The event is being supported by their partners in relation to skills including the Learning and Skills Council, GoSkills, Investors in People, Connexions and Business in the Community.
