A family-run coach holiday operator has been recognised alongside national companies in two industry award schemes.
Gardiners NMC, which is based in Coopies Lane in Morpeth, was named as a finalist in two major national competitions.
In April, its holiday programme was shortlisted in the prestigious UK Coach Awards, and last month it was rated one of the best in the National Coach Tourism Awards.
The business has a fleet of 12 coaches and runs day trips and UK and continental holidays, including excursions and three-star accommodation.
Managing Director Adrian Smith said: “It is a real honour that respected industry professionals recognise what we are trying to achieve, and it is a huge tribute to our dedicated team who work tirelessly.”
