...I decided that it was time to start my own Coach Business. This was as the result of my growing up with buses & coaches with my father who had been an Engineering Superintendent with Eastern Counties Omnibus Company. I had long held an ambition to operate my own fleet of coaches and Peterborough with its growth & development at that time provided the ideal opportunity. I purchased my first coach an AEC reliance 53 seat model and decided on a Maroon & Cream colour scheme. As the business grew, more AEC coaches were purchased and the fleet increased in size to 12 coaches by the mid 1980's.
In 1986, I purchased my first 'Brand New' coach, a SCANIA K112 and adopted a new Maroon, Silver & Crimson colour scheme. The purchase of more SCAN lA coaches gradually saw the replacement of the AEC's until the fleet became all SCANIA in the late 1990's, by this time it had grown to 17 vehicles 6 of which were double deckers.
The Millennium saw changes with the phasing out of the double deckers and the introduction of 3 MERCEDES mini buses plus 1 mini coach. The coach fleet has remained all SCANIA until recently, when I purchased 4 IVECO coaches and a DENNIS; with a new colour scheme of White, Maroon, Silver & Crimson.
In 2001, my wife Linda gave up her career in the Civil Service to work with me and take over much of the administration and the running of the office. Along with Ally and Jo, we look forward to continuing to provide our customers with the same levels of Quality, Reliability & Service as we have for the past 40 years.
