Galloway Owners retiring
« on: April 05, 2016, 08:28:24 pm »
The owners of Galloways plan to retire at the end of the summer season.  The business will be bought by Stephensons holding company and be run independently of Stephensons with the existing management.

Yes, it's true Steve. The story's in this week's issue of Coach & Bus Week (CBW) magazine, including quotes from Stephensons MD Bill Hiron being "keen to stress" that the two businesses will remain separate. The CBW story also states that the deal is to for completion by November.
