Record turn out for 20th annual Bakers Dolphin reunion

Bakers DolphinHoliday-makers turned out in force to attend the 20th annual Bakers Dolphin customer reunion, this year held in North London.

Over 500 travellers from across the South West joined the coach company for its get-together which, this year, had a medieval theme.

The reunion is held by the Weston-super-Mare based company every year, to bring its regular customers together and have one last knees-up before Christmas.

Bakers Dolphin Sales and Marketing Director Amanda Harrington said: “The reunion is always great fun but this year we had a record turn-out with over 500 people joining us in Elstree.

“We like to hold a reunion to get the chance to see our regular customers and spend some time with them, while doing what we do best – holidays! This is the 20th reunion we have held and the customers said it was the best one yet!

“We visited several local landmarks and stayed in a lovely hotel but the highlight was definitely the medieval banquet where we all dressed up in traditional medieval costumes.

“This year we welcomed people who had travelled with us for the first time as well as people who use us a dozen times a year.

“The whole weekend is about having fun and visiting some nice places, it’s a great way to make new friends and join up with old friends and we’re already planning next year’s reunion in North Wales!”

The four-day trip included a visit to Woburn Safari Park and Abbey, a day at the RAF museum at Hendon and an evening at the Hatfield House Banquet.

Bakers Dolphin has been in business since 1889, providing pick-up points across the South West and offering holidays, short-breaks and day-trips to locations in the UK, on the continent and further-afield.
