Cambridge travel company is appealing for former drivers to get in touch
Premier Travel is holding a reunion for employees who worked at the company when it operated local bus and coach services from 1936 to 1987.
The independent travel company, based in Cambourne, is holding its first reunion in Cambridge on 6 December and is looking for any former bus drivers to get in touch to come along.
Before it became a travel agency, Premier Travel operated local bus services between Cambridge and a number of surrounding market towns and villages including Barrington, Sawston, Melbourn, Harston, Huntingdon, Haverhill and Royston.
Premier Travel had a head office in Market Hill, Cambridge and other bus depots nearby. Operations continued to expand to include express coach services and coaches to coastal resorts around England, including Clacton and Great Yarmouth.
Premier’s bus services ran for 50 years and the business now wants to welcome as many former staff members as possible at their first reunion.
Paul Waters, director of Premier Travel, said: “This will be our first ever reunion for staff who worked for Premier when it was a local bus company.
“We would love to trace back the roots of the company and would be delighted to hear from former staff who would like to come along and share their memories and photos of their time, or just meet some old friends.”
Former bus and coach drivers or their families who would be interested in attending the reunion should email firstname.lastname@example.org by 8 November.
