A century of touring history will be celebrated as almost 200 former drivers descend on Yorkshire this weekend.

The loyal former workers of Wallace Arnold Coach Tours (WA), which was founded back in 1912, are set to look back on the company’s 100-year history at a drivers’ reunion at the Holiday Inn on Kings Road, Harrogate, until Sunday.

Organiser Jon Hartley, who worked as a driver and hotel contracts manager at the firm for more than 27 years, will relive memories with colleagues, many of whom are still mourning its loss after it was effectively lost through a company merger in 2005.
