Belle Coaches 95th Birthday

This week saw Lowestoft based Coach Company celebrate its 95th Birthday. Shreeve and Co was founded in 1924 by Benjamin Shreeve which carried out Summer outings and even its first School contracts, The current limited Company BR Shreeve & Sons Ltd was formed in 1943.

By the 1950's, Mr Shreeve's three sons were working in the business, In 1959 Wightman's Coaches of Saxmundham were purchased and, soon after, a new operating base was established at Leiston.

The company then formed it touring holiday company, Lazy Days Holidays. The company is currently being run by the daughter of Ken Shreeve (one of Benjamin's grandsons) Amy Churchyard.


 The most recent addition to the fleet is Iveco Indcar Minicoach BC19BEL.
