SLG Administration

Unfortunately the owner of coach holiday operator Shearings has collapsed into administration, with 2,460 immediate job losses and thousands of holiday cancellations.

A trio of Shearings in December 2018
Specialist Leisure Group (SLG), which also owns National Holidays and hotel chain Bay Hotels, has said all tours and hotel breaks in the UK and abroad have been cancelled and would not be rescheduled.

Both coach operators Shearings Holidays and National Holidaya ran tours based in Great Yarmouth mainly centred on the Carlton Hotel which is part of the Bay Hotel chain.

The administration means that the familiar and regular appearances of the two operators‘ coaches will cease to be seen in the town. It also signifies the closure of the resort's Carlton Hotel

The collapse will adversely affect tourism in the Great Yarmouth area from a business and employment point of view.

Look out for a post from Grahame soon showing some of the vehicles operated
