Parry’s marked its 50th anniversary at a special event in London. PARRY’S INTERNATIONAL

Founded in November 1973, and still under the leadership of founder and Managing Director Dave Parry, respected coach operator Parry’s International celebrated 50 years in business with a special event for staff and customers in London. Based in Cheslyn Hay in the West Midlands, the company started out undertaking a variety of work, including private hire and school trips and contract work, introducing a tour programme around 1977. By 1980, the company had shifted to focus solely on the tour market, with trips to a range of British and European destinations.

Parry’s is a regular attendee at the UK Coach Rally in Blackpool. JONATHAN WELCH
