We’re all going on a Summer Holiday

We’re all going on a Summer Holiday……….. from 21 June 2021.

We are busy in the office confirming dates and re-arranging hotels and attractions, (Jackie’s delicious Hot Chocolates and Rose’s beautiful Cakes are helping us get through the paperwork) so we can post our brochure out to you mid-March.

The phones have started to ring with enquiries, and I think we are all looking forward to a change of scenery and enjoying a coffee with friends.

Our priority has to be, transporting all of you in a safe and Covid free manor, to a safe destination.

We are hoping to offer a limited number of day trips and short breaks from 17th May 2021, but awaiting Government guidance with regards to the number we can carry.

Just a few of the trips below…

Harrogate Spring Flower Show – Sunday 23rd May 2021

The Making of Harry Potter – Saturday 29th May 2021

Appleby Horse Fair – Sunday 6th June 2021

BBC Good Food Show – Sunday 20th June 2021

Sidmouth – Friday 21st – Monday 24th May 2021

Hampton Court and Wiseley – Friday 28th – Sunday 30th May 2021

County Durham – Friday 4th – Monday 7th June 2021

Our first full week back at work!!

Our first full week back at work following the Christmas and New Year break, and we had planned on completing our 2021 brochure. It is not to be, and the year has started a little slower than planned.

Our next holiday to Sidmouth in February is looking doubtful, we are follow Government guidelines and will notify everyone in due course.

The Christmas cards have come down and the office is looking a bit sparse. Cabinets are being tidied up and sorted into some sort of order – it will be so organised Stacey and Amy won’t find a thing, and David’s regular fogging means that even my desk is spic and span!

In the process of having a bit of a tidy up I came across some old paper work;

1956 A second hand Crossley half cab was bought for £150 from Stoddard’s’ of Cheadle

1990 Receipt for a new Duple coach at a cost of £80,000

1989/90 Photos – Leek Town returning from Wembley, coach driving around “the roundabout”

1994 A weeks holiday in Bournemouth in our 1994 brochure cost £142

2004 A local company collapsed, and we stepped in to transport ticket holders to a Tina Turner concert.

2009 The country is in recession and fewer people travelled abroad, but our UK coach holidays were very popular

2015 On our tour to The Scilly Isles, our passengers met Bill Oddie

Advert for a Day Trip to London costing £4

I’ll continue with the tidy up and see what other snippets I come across –

Keep safe everyone


Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year

The office is now closed until Wednesday 6th January 2021.

I am sure, like us, you will be pleased to see the end of 2020. But we are confident that the light at the end of the tunnel is looking a little brighter and we will soon be back on the road.

Our 2021 Brochure is well under way and we plan on posting out to you all at the end of February.

Please keep safe and well.

Just a reminder to everyone that we are unable to hold our booking days: that were planned for this week and next.

A sneak preview of our 2021 dates will be sent to you before Christmas, with the main brochure posted in February.

Please keep safe everyone.

the brakes are on…

The brakes have been put on our coaches once again as this horrid virus just won’t go away!  After being so positive and working hard to get things moving again, we have now cancelled all of our November day excursions and holidays. 

Behind the scenes (in the office and at home), there has been a lot of pondering, thinking, talking, sleepless nights and general “what the hell shall we do?” to adapt to the ever changing environment we find ourselves in.

With this in mind, we have now decided to postpone sending out our 2021 brochure until the New Year. The good news is, the brochure has lots of holidays and short breaks ready for our new normal of Staycation in some lovely parts of our country.

We all need something to look forward to and if you do require the dates of our 2021 holidays or just fancy a natter, then please get in touch. We’re only at the end of the phone!

The office is open throughout the week with the telephones manned Monday to Friday 9-5, as they have been throughout this pandemic.

Please keep safe everyone

PS. Our annual Get Together has been postponed until Sunday 30 January 2022 – we will all be in need of a good party!
