Operators based in North East Wales
RE: Operators based in North East Wales
Voel Coaches, Dyserth
Today (Tuesday 26th February) a well attended event was held in Prestatyn to celebrate 70 years of operation by this successful company based in Dyserth near Rhyl in north Wales. A coach (YT15AVF) <PHOTO1> has been given a special livery to also mark this event. Whilst at one time the firm operated a number of services in the area today the business is mainly holidays, day tours, private hire and a large number of school and college contracts. The current fleet number about 34 and are predominately coaches although there are still two Olympians and four minibuses. The latter used for feeders for the coach tours and holidays that are operated. The business is very much a family business. Melfyn, the son of the founder William Kerfoot-Davies, can be seen in this <PHOTO2> and he now takes a back seat whilst his daughter Michelle and her husband Martin have taken over day to day management of the company. There are also fourth generations of the family involved in the company as seen in this photo <PHOTO3>.

Recent additions to the fleet are NH06NEH and NH06MEH, Volvo B12M / Van Hool Alizee which were new in March 2006 to Shearings (National Holidays) and came from their last operator Hunters Executive of Clackmannan. One of these Alizees (NEH) is being upseated to 70. NH06MEH is seen <HERE> at the depot having been given the familiar orange livery but awaiting the new vinyl fleet transfers.

A current fleet list and historic fleet list are available on my website

I have a website which looks at the bus and coach operators in North East Wales. There are current fleetlists for all operators and most have a full historic fleet list.
Included are current depot fleet lists for Arriva Cymru. There are also a number of ceased opertators with historic fleet lists including the GHA Group
