1000th Coach Visits Bury Market

1000th Coach Driver 2014

Gee Vee coach driver Melvin Clayton received an unexpected surprise when he made one of his regular visits to Bury's award-winning market.

Melvin's visit meant that 1,000 coaches had visited Bury Market since the start of the year, bringing visitors from all over the UK and abroad.

To mark the occasion, Melvin was presented with a complimentary bottle of champagne by markets manager Andrew Heyes, who said: "We're delighted that so many coach operators continue to visit our award-winning market. We've just opened a new toilet block and installed an ATM machine, which should make the market an even more welcoming day out for our many thousands of visitors."

Barnsley-based Gee Vee Travel has been running tours and day excursions since 1984, and visits Bury Market every month.
