Summer / Autumn Newsletter

Dear Friends + Coach Travellers + Regular, Occasional, New & Potential!
A very warm welcome to you all!
Weve already had some very enjoyable holidays and breaks this year, along with interesting day tours. Holiday numbers have been very good, but day tours (particularly for gardens)less so, almost certainly due to the weather.
At the time of writing this, there are some places available on late Summer and Autumn breaks. Whilst single rooms are ever more at a premium, a few do currently remain for our Worcestershire/Cotswolds tour and our Bournemouth Turkey and Tinsel. Occasionally we do get cancellations so it is always worth checking.
Our Thursford Christmas Spectacular Tour has a few seats left. On this tour we have changed the hotel to the Holiday Inn Ipswich Road Norwich.
Our first 3 holidays of 2025 are now advertised on this site on the Home page.
Looking forward to meeting you all again soon & thanking you for your patronage.
with Kind Regards
Clive Richardson
