  1. Another one less.
    Started by Ric 13/04/2018

    No RAF Falcons at Southport Airshow this year. They're going to struggle to get the crowds in as seen in previous years. Last year was quiet but this year isn't looking good so far.

    I'm currently job hunting and using various websites, I've set search parameters to 10 miles of Southport. I regularly get notifications of jobs in Blackpool, 30 miles at least by road! Surely sites should use the road distance (or available means of transport) not as the crow flies.
