A coach firm has found itself on the right road after being commended for a national award for its personal service and family feel.

Lawton’s Executive Coaches, based in Stickney, was commended in the Top Small Fleet Operator category of the 2013 UK Coach Rally and Awards competition.

The firm was chosen from more than 150 entries and judges awarded the company for its personal service and family feel.

Joint owner Geoff Lawton said: “We’re quite proud to say we have been going for eight years and achieved an award like this for our small company of dedicated staff.”

He added: “It gets us recognised, it proves we’re doing a good job and our customers are more than happy.

“It’s a customer instigated award so it’s them that put us forward and it’s good to know we’re doing a job good enough for them.”

Family-business Lawton’s Executive Coaches has been established for eight years and runs a total of nine vehicles all together.

It was established to provide a friendly, personal service specialising in wheelchair-friendly coaches for customers with impaired mobility.
