The late Jimmy “The Ticket” McEvoy, pictured with Robert Frost on an outing to Chester Zoo in 2001. Bernie Buxton says Jimmy, who died in 2006, was given his nickname because he was always selling raffle tickets to raise money for children in care. And he adds: “His three sisters are still heavily-involved with the fund to this day.”

Taxi Trade Exhibition 2008

The Northwest Taxi & Private Hire Trade Exhibition at the B T Convention Centre Kings Dock Liverpool got off to a great start on Tuesday 29th July.

Not long after Mr Bernard Lawson DCC of Merseyside Police declared the show open, followed by a short speech from Bernie Buxton, the event organiser, the exhibition hall started buzzing with visitors who just couldn’t wait to get through the doors.

It was not only the private hire & cab drivers that came to the show but members of the public called in whilst visiting the Albert Dock, the new exciting Liverpool One shopping centre and many other visitor attractions that make Liverpool one of the best cities in the World

The success of the show now means that the L.T.D.C.I C.O.F. trip for local underprivileged children to Euro Disney in Paris is so much closer.

I would like to thank all the exhibitors, sponsors & visitors who contributed to make the show so successful especially Merseyside Police Mounted Division, Merseyside Fire & Rescue, Vintage Fire Brigade, Doug Cheshire of LVTA, JMU First Aid Demonstration and Bouncy Castle Hire.
