"Firstly, on behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Mark for his service over a period in which the turnover of the business grew more than tenfold and wish him well for the future.


We are delighted to welcome Rachel to the Board. Rachel is an experienced director, with an impressive track record both in her executive and non-executive roles.  Her breadth of expertise will be invaluable as we continue our focus on People, Service, Profits and deliver our strategy to be the UK's Leading and Best Leisure Travel Business".
