Thanks to help from Stroud Times readers, Melvyn Wilkins has just published his book From Stroud Valleys to Alpine Passes, A nostalgic trip over 70 years.
The former part-time coach driver said: “My book came to fruition and in just 11 weeks is finished and now at the printers, thanks in part to the fast response from many people in the area who have sent me photos, stories and anecdotes. This coupled with hundreds of photos that I have been sent and allowed to use from coach ‘spotters’ nationwide.”
The book covers seven decades of holiday tours by coach operators Rover Coaches and Beavis Travels. It costs £11.95 plus £2.40 postage, contact Melvyn by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or text on 07866 459170 for ordering details.
