AS families, school pupils and councillors get ready for Cabbie Day, black cabs will be setting off from East London very soon.

The plan for the day is as follows:

- The convoy approaches Maldon Morrisons from the direction of Danbury at around 12.20pm-12.30pm.

- The convoy drives along Spital Road, into the High Street continuing into Mill Road to the junction with Mundon Road.

- It continues into Cross Road before turning right into Fambridge Road where it will arrive at Plume Academy at around 12.45pm.

- After lunch and entertainment at Plume Academy, they will head to Promenade Park.

There will also be balloons being handed out to children near the Moot Hall.

Crowds are advised to keep hydrated.

Make sure to arrive in plenty of good time on the High Street and give a massive cheer to the convoy!
