On Wednesday I travelled down to the NEC to attend the Coach & Bus Live exhibition to meet some of our coach suppliers.
There was an impressive display of new vehicles & safety innovations being developed to make coach travel even more safe & comfortable for passengers.
I had a very good meeting with Paul Catterall, owner of Catteralls coaches of Southam who has been providing our School Groups with excellent service for many years now & to discuss next years School tour bookings with him. Catteralls have also invested in new coaches recently which our clients will benefit from.
Following the exhibition, there was a gala awards evening at the Hilton Hotel for the Route One coach & bus awards. I was invited as a guest of York Pullman coaches, another of our key coach providers. The evening was a celebration of excellence in the coach industry & the awards were a recognition of top quality service.
Galina are very happy to report that York Pullman won the award for Large Coach Operator of the Year!. They were up against some very well respected & established coach providers but the quality of their vehicles & drivers ensured it was York Pullman who picked up the award.
Congratulations again to Tom James & Kevin Walker & all the team at York Pullman, the win was well deserved.
We look forward to a continuing partnership with York Pullman, Coach Operator of the Year 2015.
