Stephen Mayne, owner of Warrington and Manchester-based Mayne Coaches, passed away on Saturday July 28, aged 62.

Stephen, a long standing and active member of CPT and its predecessors, took over the familyrun Mayne Coaches from his father who had inherited it from his father before him. He made a significant contribution as a member of the CPT North West’s regional committee.
