Business tycoon embarks on rollercoaster ride to rejuvenate Southport
A £30,000 campaing to save the future of Southport is being led by a local businessman.
Norman Wallis who has singlehandedly revived the fortunes of Pleasureland has now set up a business working group which he hopes will inject thousands of pounds into restoring the local economy.
Businesses have pledged nearly £30,000 towards Southport’s future Norman, who transformed the theme park 10 years ago after it had become a derelict wasteland, says business leaders need to devote more attention to attracting those from out of town. But he says if the scheme is to work, he needs the support of other business owners who want to put their hand in their pocket.
Norman told OTS News: “I do feel that now we have to actively promote Southport in order to bring a greater footfall towards the end of the season.
“Traders are quick enough to complain and moan about things being no good but they don’t actually want to do anything about it.
“If you wish to get involved in the regeneration campaign you can do so by emailing, email Sandra@southportpleasureland.com
