A DIRECTOR of a coach company has scooped a national tourism award for devotion to his firm as he steps down from a long-running successful career.

Colin Hearn, of Angela Holidays in Bursledon, collected the award for Coach Professional of the Year in front of more than 400 tourism industry professionals at the National Coach Tourism Awards in Blackpool.

In giving Colin the award, judges noted testimonials of Colin describing him as very well thought of and someone who will always go that extra mile.

After 42 years working in the industry, Colin said it brought a happy note to the end of his career.

He said: “It was a very pleasant surprise to receive this award and a real honour to bring to the end my 42 years in the coach holiday industry.

"The setting of the magnificent Blackpool Tower Ballroom added to the enjoyment of winning such a prestigious award.”
