Newsletter January / February 2023

Starting our 35th anniversary is a real milestone. A very Happy New Year to you all. I expect your New Years Resolution will be to go on more of our tours & excursions in 2023!!

Whilst 2022 was a rather disappointing year for day tours; holidays held up very well. As regular travellers already know, we made a big change in the Summer with Cordery Coaches now very successfully operating almost all of our holidays. Also established over 30 years, this small, private, family coach firm operate lovely modern coaches, all with toilet, reclining seats and additional leg room. They are one of only approx 50 coach operators in the UK to have achieved the coach marque of quality accreditation.

For day tours we are currently using smaller 30 / 35 seater coaches from several companies including Empress Coaches; with a full size vehicle when demand is high.

Please note that since the pandemic we much prefer payments by cheque. Bank transfers are also possible but we currently no longer accept payment by card.

Wishing you all the very best for 2023!

Clive / Lucie Richardson & family
