Fenland coach company’s drivers rewarded for impeccable safety record
A CHATTERIS coach company is celebrating after its drivers were rewarded for their impeccable safety record.
Drivers at C&G Coaches, who cover around one million miles a year, have received a series of awards from the Road Operators Safety Council.
The firm have clocked up more than 240 blameworthy accident-free years between their 20 drivers. The three partners of the company - Carole Day, Graham Ellwood and Bob Day - have amassed 82 years free of blameworthy accidents by themselves.
Mrs Day said: “I’m absolutely delighted. Every year it’s getting better. We cover so many miles every year so we have a lot of exposure but we’ve still managed to stay safe. I’m very proud of our record.
“It’s great for our morale, it’s great for our passengers and our drivers get pride in their job. It really is a family company - we have fathers and sons working here.”
