Date: Friday 16th September 2016

Departing: Wrexham

Arriving: Chateau du Molay


Our Drivers: Des Cochrane and Andy Smith




I had the good fortune to be taken to Normandy in Jim Hughes Coach driven by Des and Andy and the purpose of this note is to make you aware of how well those two performed.


I cannot fault them. They were always prepared to go wherever I asked in difficult conditions, narrow roads and lanes with high banks and un-predictable traffic and several difficult diversions.  They were always on time, courteous, helpful interested in what was going on and, in short, a definite asset to the tour.  I am most grateful to them both and I hope you will let them know (which we have).
