A COACH firm from Bognor Regis has been crowned Coach Operator of the Year at the UK Coach Awards 2013.

Woods Travel of Bognor Regis was named as Top Small Fleet Operator, which meant the firm was put forward for the overall title – and drove away the winner.

The judges were impressed by the company’s track record of growth, diversification and adaptability, which has kept it among the leaders of quality coach service and holiday suppliers.

Woods Travel has been established for more than 40 years and is family-run.

Roger Elsmere, managing director of Woods Travel Group, said: ‘Thanks must go to the customers who were kind enough to nominate us, enabling us to take part.

‘We are all thrilled with this recognition of our hard work and hope it will inspire other small businesses. After all, being smaller does not mean you cannot be the best.’
