Bakers Dolphin offers jobs to Crosville Motors staff after cutbacks

A group of bus drivers who help to run a service in Burnham-On-Sea and Weston could see their jobs saved by a local coach operator.

As recently reported here by, Crosville Motors announced they will be stopping some services at the end of April.

The company currently operates two bus services in Weston plus shopper services for Asda in Taunton and Tesco in Burnham-On-Sea.

However, Bakers Dolphin, which is based just a few miles away from Crosville Motor Services, say they are 'saddened' to hear the company will no longer run the bus services and they may be able to offer opportunities to Crosville staff affected by the service cuts.

Max Fletcher, managing director at Bakers Dolphin, says: "We were saddened to hear about Crosville’s decision."

"However, we are currently trying to recruit drivers and other staff, so we would like to explore how we can help Crosville staff continue their careers within the coach industry, and how we can bring their experience to Bakers Dolphin."

"It is always upsetting to see a coach business hit difficulty, and to see people potentially face losing their jobs."

"Coach travel is a very competitive and highly-regulated business that is difficult for those without the broad spectrum of income that we have to operate within."

"Bakers Dolphin are committed to Weston-super-Mare and serving the local community."

If any Crosville staff affected by the company’s difficult decision want to discuss potential opportunities at Bakers Dolphin, they should contact Derek Forbes on 01934 415000.
