Did you know Crosskeys Coaches was established 40 years ago! We’ve been looking into the History of Crosskeys Coaches and where it all began! Now owned by Alan Johnson, it was Alan’s father Keith, who started the company back in 1973 under the name Johnsons Mini Coaches. A few years later, they became Crosskeys Coaches after purchasing Crosskeys from the Tozer family. Today, alongside Alan, are his sister Debbie and brother-in-law Nigel. The family are proud of the fact that Crosskeys Coaches has always remained an independent, family run business.
Over the next few months, we will endeavour to create an A-Z of places of interest that we visit by coach on our Day Trips. So to start with A, let us introduce…..
Afternoon Cité Europe
For all you shopping lovers out there, this is a day trip for you! We run afternoon coach trips to Cite Europe every month and they continue to prove popular. We offer one pick-up at 1pm from Brickfields restaurant in Cheriton, Folkestone, keeping travelling time to a minimum (You can park for free at Brickfields).
From Brickfields, we jump on the Eurotunnel for the short journey to Cite Europe.
Well it’s mid May and it appears we’re still awaiting the arrival of summer! With mutterings amongst friends along the lines of “must emigrate” and “winter sun”, it started us thinking of how to adapt our ways to embrace this lengthy winter!!
There’s always the more obvious ways of always wearing a jumper and owning a raincoat (did you know – in Galicia in Spain, people always carry an umbrella and shops and restaurants have umbrella stands as standard)! But how do you fill your days when the sun refuses to shine?
