One of North Wales' top travel companies, Voel Coaches is approaching a special milestone at its base in Dyserth.

Owners Mavis & Melvyn Kerfoot-Davies, shared their thoughts on the anniversary and what is to be expected.

“To mark this prestigious milestone of our company, we are really excited to be bringing these fantastic concerts to the local area for our surrounding communities who have supported us over the years, we have some extra special surprises coming up in 2024.”

From humble beginnings, the company has expanded to become a well-known local enterprise with a stellar reputation in the coach travel sector as a whole. The Company is proud that it is still owned by the same family, with the third and fourth generations now actively participating in day-to-day operations.
