The Seafront 12 service of Classic Bus North West had its route extended southwards from the Pleasure Beach to St Annes on 20th July. After leaving the Blackpool boundary at Starr Gate, the route continues south along Clifton Drive North past the sandhills. On entering the built up area of St Annes, the route takes a right turn down Todmorden Road onto the North Promenade, continuing past St Annes Pier onto the South Promenade, taking a left turn into Lightburne Ave at the Chadwick Hotel. Another left turn is made at the end of Lightburne Avenue onto Clifton Drive, this time heading north-west to regain the original route by running past the sandhills and back to Blackpool.

Ex Lothian Buses Volvo Olympian P269 PSX has received a new vinyl advert for the Wallace and Gromit themed "Thrill-O-Matic" ride, similar to the advert already carried by 12m Metrobus F69 SYE.
