In late January, over 180 customers, guests and suppliers celebrated Airedale’s 30th anniversary at the TLH Derwent Hotel in Torquay. Amongst the guests was Clive Kessell, GTO for East Grinstead Probus, who, since 2009, has chosen Airedale Tours to organise two holidays a year for his group.
Clive says that the four-day event was excellent with a warm welcome from the hotel staff and the Airedale Tours team. ‘We enjoyed nightly entertainment, special receptions and a gala dinner.’ In the day time, during trips to Babbacombe Model Village, Kents Cavern, Bygones, Bicton Park, Seaton Tramway and a River Exe cruise with Stuart Line Cruises, Clive chatted to other GTOs to find out what trips had worked well for their members.
The group’s next holiday with Airedale Tours is to Luxembourg in May, and, as usual, around 50 members will be taking part. Clive adds, ‘I was delighted to be invited to join Airedale’s 30th anniversary celebration. The team understand the needs of my members very well, and are excellent at sorting every detail for us. I have no hesitation in recommending them to other GTOs, whether for trips in the UK or overseas.’
