Ann and Paul Cousins, organisers of the UK Coach Rally for 26 years, have been recognised for their efforts by a group of operators and drivers.
Matthew Haynes, of Banstead Coaches, and Chris Bibby, of Bibbys of Ingleton, along with driver Alan Peachey of Robinsons of Kimbolton, presented Mr and Mrs Cousins with an award at the Saturday evening dinner dance at the 2018 Rally, held in Blackpool on 28-29 April.
Their organisation, Coach Displays, handles all organisation of the Rally. They were responsible for breathing new life into the event in 2016 by taking it to Blackpool, where it has flourished.
“On behalf of the coach industry, we believe that it was time that Ann and Paul had something to show for their efforts,” says Mr Peachey.
